Do you use fishingfor cross ?
If you’ve ever seen a picture of what looks like thread running in a grid on a crossproject, it’s likely that the er did their gridding with fishing or something similar. Using fishing is great as it won’t leave permanent marks on fabric, it’s inexpensive, and it’s reusable!
What should I consider before gridding cross stitch fabric?
One thing to note before gridding cross stitch fabric is to consider how long you will likely be stitching the piece for. Is it a small piece you’ll have done in a few weeks, or is it a larger piece that could take years to do? For larger pieces I would suggest griddinglines using “thread.”
How do you sew fishing line into fabric?
To stitch your fishing line into your fabric, use a fine sewing needle to thread your fishing line onto. Don’t use a tapestry needle, or the needle might make the holes in your fabric slightly wider — you could end up with a little grid of holes all over your fabric when you remove the line.
What kind of thread do you use to stitch grid lines?
If you prefer stitching your gridlines rather than drawing them, there is a product called Easy Count Guideline that is a thin nylon thread. There is a link to a demonstration video on their home page, and then the thread is really easy to pull out and reuse as it’s not going to get split or caught into the needlepoint itself.
