How to Embroider the Cross Stitch

Step By Step Guide:

1. Bring your needle up through the fabric where you would like the top point of your cross to start.

2. Make a short stitch forward to create the first bar of your cross.

3. Next, bring your needle up through the fabric perpendicular and slightly away from the stitch you just made.

4. Then create a short stitch forward that crosses over the first stitch you created.
