Check the product description to see what comes with the cross stitching kits you're interested in stitching. Most kits contain a pattern, fabric, needle(s) and the color-coordinated embroidery thread (called "floss") for your project.
Counted cross stitch patterns require you to establish a starting point and count in each direction to determine which stitch goes where. With stamped cross stitch, the pattern is printed on the fabric, and you just stitch on top of it.
We all know what it's like to start a new venture. Many times it's just a matter of buckling down and taking that first step. If you've never done cross stitch, you may be a little shaky at first, but no worries – soon, you'll be stitching like a pro!
Be sure you read through all the instructions before you get started. Pull apart your embroidery thread (also called "floss") into individual strands. And study your color chart carefully to make sure you know your light gray from your medium gray. Things can get ugly if you get to the end of your project and you're out of a particular color – or the finished product doesn't look like the picture on the front of the package!
Before you get started, ensure you have the proper cross-stitch tools, including the must-haves (embroidery scissors, hoop/frame, high-intensity lamp) and nice-to-haves (line keeper, thread minder, cross stitch key, project bag).
If you're going to frame the finished cross stitch kit, know the dimensions and have the frame handy. Then relax, start stitching and watch a masterpiece take shape!
