How to prepare the cross-stitch motif

How To Prepare the Cross Stitch Motif

  1. Measure the maximum height and width of the part in Aida fabric to find the centre, and mark it each time with a pin (see diagram).
     
  2. Also find the centre of the diagram and mark it with a pencil. Calculate the number of stitches horizontally and vertically to be sure you can stitch the entire motif.
     
  3. Start stitching from the middle of the diagram.
     
  4. Each square represents a cross stitch and each symbol a colour.
     
  5. Work with two threads of Embroidery Floss.
