Tips for stitching on washable items:
1. Use colorfast Floss
Stranded Cotton colors are colorfast which means you can machine wash them even at a high temperature, which makes them ideal for bathroom towels.
Do not use metallics that cannot be washed at a high temperature and if you use other threads, check their specifications to make sure they will not run and will hold their color.
2. Finishing your thread.
Make sure each length of thread is solidly secured at the back of your stitching and will not come undone during repeated washes.
To get started on a Cross Stitch project, you will need:
- Aida Cross Stitch Fabric
- Six-strand embroidery floss (more commonly known as Stranded Cotton)
- Anchor Stranded Cotton OR DMC Stranded Cotton
- Tapestry or Cross Stitch Needles (needles with a blunt tip and large eye for threading multiple threads into).
- Hoops or Frames (optional)
