How do I cross stitch on evenweave fabric?
Cross-stitches on evenweave are worked over two fabric threads, so the finished “x” covers a four-thread square.
Stitching is done by coming up through a hole between woven threads at A. Then go down at B, the hole diagonally across from A. Come back up at C and down at D, etc. Complete the top stitches to create an “X.” All top stitches should lie in the same direction.
Should I prewash the fabric before painting my design?
Yes, all fabrics should be prewashed using soap and water following the manufacturer’s washing instructions, most denim fabrics should be washed multiple times in hot water to thoroughly remove the sizing in the fabric. DO NOT use a liquid fabric softener or a dryer sheet as this may prevent the paints from adhering properly. If your garment is wrinkled, you may iron the fabric as instructed on the garment label, DO NOT use a spray starch product.
