Cross stitch fabric

Cross stitch is usually stitched on aida, a fabric woven with an evenly-spaced grid of holes. These are the tiny holes you’ll use to cross stitch.

Cross stitch needles

Find a needle size that will comfortably pass back and forth through the holes in the fabric without stretching. A size 24 would work well for 14 count aida.

Threads

The majority of cross-stitch designs are stitched with embroidery thread. The most popular brand is DMC.

Embroidery hoop

Use an embroidery hoop to keep the fabric taut while you stitch. They are a great way to maintain good tension and count your stitches.

Chart

And of course you need a chart. You can buy it or make yourself. Visit my Etsy shop to find some. 🙂

I hope my tips were useful for you.
