ADDING BACKSTITCH OUTLINES & DETAILS
WORK your backstitch once you’ve finished the cross stitch. To secure your thread, weave it through the back of your stitches, then bring your needle up to the surface.
MAKE each backstitch over one thread of fabric on aida and two threads if you work on evenweave. Follow the chart to see where to place each one.
KEEP your thread as taut as possible to prevent the knot becoming loose. Gently pull your thread through to tighten the knot, so that it sits neatly on the surface.
