Before embroidery, it is recommended to mark all the coils of the threads of the floss, so as not to be confused afterwards. As labels, you should place the symbols contained in the table and chart. Work start from the upper left corner,corresponding to the first fragment of the circuit. In order not to be confused, make a marking on the canvas with the help of a special marker, which is washed off after the end of the work. For this purpose, the squares of ten cells in each are drawn on the canvas. Some masters do embroidery at oncea few shades, leaving the threads in the needles and not cutting them off the canvas. We do not recommend this kind of work, because threads can get confused with each other. It is more convenient to consider the variant, in which one is first passed in one shade, and then another, embroidering an elected square with a size of 5x5 cells. Try to embroider in such a way that the top thread of each cross is directed in one direction. With such embroidery, it will look homogeneous. How to care for the finished product. At the end of the work, the product should be washed and ironed through gauze. However, here it is desirable to observe a number of rules: 1. In order to prevent color thread from being washed, it should be washed in cold water. 2. Do not rub the fabric while washing. Enough of that, you just hold soapy hands on the canvas, then rinse it. 3. To achieve the brilliance of the threads, the embroidery must be lowered into an aqueous solution of vinegar. 4. When ironing, spread the embroidery on a terry towel face down. This will become an obstacle to flattening crosses.
