Fixing the thread before embroidery begins

Otherwise, there will be big problems during embroidering. Its end should not be not very sharp. Fingers to prick do not make sense. It is best to buy a needle with a rounded end. She does not wake the tissue, but only to push her threads. Also pay attention to its length. A short needle is not necessary to buy and too long too. Choose a better-than-average size. It will be the most convenient for work.

If you just start embroidering, andPreviously there was no such experience, it is best to use the hoop. To embroider in three threads is rather complicated.

We take the needle, into which three threads are threaded. We fix it with the above method. We draw the thread from the lower left corner to the upper right. Thus, one stitch is obtained. To complete the cross, you need to draw the needle from the right bottom to the upper left. But you can immediately make the right amount of bottom stitches, and then return and superimpose the second row. If you embroider in this way, the crosses will be the same size.
