Cushions decorated with cross embroidery are undoubtedly an original element of the interior, and they also create an atmosphere of coziness and comfort. Cross-embroidered pillows, which are widely available on the internet, are popular among needlewomen because the result pleases the eye and creates an atmosphere of warmth at home.
Cross stitch pillow embroidery tips:
1. First of all, you have to decide on the subject and choose a scheme for embroidery according to it. To simplify the task, you can buy an embroidery kit that is already equipped with everything you need. For example, our RTO cushion kits or Collection D'Art kits.
Their only difference is in the materials provided in the kit. RTO kits come with Aida fabric and DMC cotton threads, whereas Collection D'Art kits come with printed Stramin fabric and acrylic yarn which means these kits are easier and faster to make.
2. It is better to overlock the edges of the fabric with a zigzag stitching on the sewing machine or by hand. The drawing on the pillow should be tight, so the quality of each cross should be monitored, they should fit together tightly, then the drawing will turn out to be smooth.
3. We recommend that you wash your work ready in soapy warm water, dry and iron it.
4. The fabric of the cushion finishing kit should be embroidered with the embroidered front piece tight enough. This will result in a high quality of the pillow.
