Tutorial Overview

In this video we'll demonstrate how to cut your cross stitch thread.


Step-by-step guide

Step 1:

Unwind the thread, also known as floss, then cut when you have roughly the same length as your forearm.
This is the ideal length to help prevent from getting tangled.
The thread, or floss, is made up of 6 strands. For this pattern, we will be sewing with two strands at a time.

Step 2:

Separate off the two strands.

Step 3:

Thread the needle.

Step 4:

Add a knot at one end, and you are ready to sew.
