Tips for Success:
- Keep your tension even. Too create smooth uniform stitches, pull each stitch with the same amount of tension. If the stitch is too loose it will appear limp and if the stitch is pulled too tightly the fabric will pucker and cause the design to become distorted.
- Avoid running the thread across the back of the fabric to a new stitching are ; instead start and stop in each section to assure that running threads don’t show through on the front side of the fabric.
- If you make an error and notice it right away, correct the stitches by unthreading your needle and gently pulling out the stitches.
- If your thread gets twisted while stitching, drop the threaded needle and let it hang freely until it unwinds.
First fold the aida in half two time so that we will get center of the fabric.
Then check the designed area and mark the area that is gonna cover over aida.
Well done! The tedious but important work is done. Now gather your supplies and enjoy stitching.
Take 2 strands of black color embroidery floss, insert it in embroidery needle, tie knot at other end.
Use Gavanti stitch (double running stitch) and start working from left first leg. Each square on pattern represents one stitch. Count the stitches on pattern and work on aida.
