Supplies You'll Need to Sew Your Cross Stitch Pattern

If you've already done cross stitching, you probably have some of these supplies. It's always a good idea to take a quick inventory to ensure you have everything necessary before you begin. Once you've selected one of our free cross stitch patterns to download, confirm that you have the following:

  • Fabric: The most common fabrics for cross stitching are Aida and linen.
  • Floss/Thread: Look for the color key on your pattern. It will tell you the name/number of the colors you'll need to buy.
  • Scissors: It's wise to purchase a pair of scissors that will be used only for sewing. Otherwise, they may become dull, and it will be difficult to cut your thread.
  • Embroidery Hoop: A hoop holds your fabric taut, so you can cross stitch cleanly and keep the fabric from puckering.
  • Needle/Needle Minder: Tapestry needles have a blunt end ideal for cross stitch projects. A gold-plated needle is even better because it won't rust and leave marks on your fabric – plus, it threads nicely. A needle minder is not essential, but it is handy to keep tabs on your needle easily.
  • Floss Organizer: Definitely nice to have, a floss organizer keeps your thread tidy – something you'll appreciate if you've ever had to untangle a thready mess.
