Embroidery - Cross Stitch

Embroidery Border Designs 

Border designs for the sofa wrappings, hangings, table cloths can be done with cross stitch and to be stitched on the Java cloth of your choice.

How to put Cross Stitch...

  • You can easily stitch cross stitch.
  • A blunt tapestry needle is used for this stitch.
  • Done in rows or slanted.
  • Stitch first from the left to the right laying down half the crosses and back from the right to the left to complete them.

Variation in Cross Stitch...

Designs for the Border


  • Choose a design 

  • Take the Java cloth

  • Keep the cloth intact in the Embroidery Hoop
  • Start working out the design one by one
  • First I finished the flower in red ( Anchor 047)
