Start by laying out your sweater or shirt onto a flat surface
Then take a print out of your grid design (here I used a heart) and safety pin it down.
Then begin cross stitching the design through the paper using it as a guide.
I doubled the floss to make a thicker 'X' but single thickness will work, too.
Just keep going until you finish the entire pattern.
Once the pattern is complete, use a spray bottle to wet the sheet of paper with water (optional). The wet paper is easier to remove out from the stitches but it makes a bit more of a mess.
This is the finished design.
And here's how it looks on!
- 1.0 solid sweater or shirt
- 2.0 embroidery floss
- 1.0 large needle
- 1.0 spray bottle
