Lots of beginners confused when heard this terminology. What is full coverage cross stitch? Actually, everything is much simpler than it seems.
Full coverage is one of the filling type your work.
It looks like this.
This method assumes that the entire canvas space is filled with stitches without gaps. So you should stitch every bit on the canvas. And it doesn’t matter which type of stitch you use (full, half or any other stitches).
You also can use any kind of canvas you want. Usually artisans choose Aida because of the complete sewing of its large holes, it is no longer visible, but it is easier and faster to embroider on it.
Items made in this way always look very large-scale and full-fledged, but do not forget that they take more time than the plot with partial stitching 😉
And what type of stitching do you prefer most often? Share with me in the comments.
