The technique of embroidering a cross, which we will discuss later, applies to all types of embroidery. The technique of doing cross stitching Symbolically cross stitching the colors will be divided into a number of stages. Fabric preparation, embroidery and product design. Let's start preparing the fabric. To do this, you need to fold the canvas four times and determine the central point of work. The upper right corner will be the center, which is marked with a chalk or water-soluble marker. For convenience, we propose to draw the fabric into squares, the size of which will depend on the dimensions of your embroidery. This will help you not to get lost in the pattern and to avoid wrong color changes. When you have approximately determined the layout of the pattern on the canvas, you need to cut off excess fabric, leaving around 10-15 cm on all sides near the embroidery. This distance is absolutely enough to put the finished product on the frame or create a passport. Before work, we recommend washing the fabric, provided that it has a color base. Thus, you determine whether the tissue is shedding or not. The next step in preparing the embroidery is selecting the thread and needle. Needles for embroidery have a wide eyelet and a blunt tip. Such needles are called embroidery or tapestry. When buying a ready-made circuit, the package includesneedles and threads. If you have chosen a scheme on our website or developed independently, then having come with a scheme in any specialized store, with the help of the sellers you can pick up threads of a mule of the right color and good quality. Pay attention to the lighting in the store, as in poor lighting, the color transmission may be distorted. Picking colors is better in daylight. Embroidering a cross with flowers or any other patterns,use not the entire thickness of the floss. Cut off the necessary length of yarn, which varies from 30 to 80 cm, depending on the type of cross. Cut the thread straightened and sorted into a number of parts. We do not make a knot at the end of the thread, we fix the thread with a special stitch without knots. Embroidery of flowers can be started anywhere. Stitches are done in the following way: On the face we draw the corners from the wrong side. Stitch the stitch, pulling the needle and thread in the opposite corner diagonally. Then, from the wrong side, we extend the needle to the lower right corner. Then repeat the stitches along the diagonal of the required length. When we make the last stitch diagonally,we approach the embroidery of the second half of the cross. The needle with the thread is passed on the outside from the bottom right to the upper left corner. To go to another cross you need to stretch the thread from the wrong side to the lower left corner. Moving from right to left, we finish the path from the stitches. In this way we sew stitches along the whole pattern. Make sure that the wrong side is neat, since it is believed that the work should look beautiful from all sides. The final stage is the design of the embroidered drawing. First you need to process the ends of the canvas. For this, we sew the edge of the sewing machine with a zigzag stitch or overlock, or manually treat the edges with a velvet suture. Sometimes masters do not process the edges of the canvas, but cut the threads and slightly tear them. Next, the prepared embroidery is inserted into the frame or decorated with clothes and accessories. We offer you a choice of cross-stitch embroidery schemes for free and without registration, with which you can embroider sunflowers and roses, irises and poppies with a cross.
