How to prepare the cross-stitch motif
- 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).
- 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.
- Start stitching from the middle of the diagram.
- Each square represents a cross stitch and each symbol a colour.
- Work with two threads of Embroidery Floss.
