CrossStitch Neat Back Tutorial by crafty-manx CrossStitch Neat Back Tutorial by crafty-manx
Cross Stitch "How To Keep Your Back Neat" Tutorial

I've written this tutorial as an aid to cross stitchers who have trouble keeping the back of their work neat. A neat back not only looks nice, but improves your stitching: it is easier to remove mistakes and it minimizes bulk, helping your piece to lie flat when finished. Though I've tried to write so that everyone can understand, this tutorial does assume a basic familiarity with cross stitching, and is not meant to teach the craft from scratch.

For anyone who is curious, the piece I've used for this example is dA Emoticon: Wink/Razz: [link]

Please feel free to ask questions!!!

This is a well made tutorial. You have good pictures and description. I admit the back of my work is often lumpy, but that's mostly because I'm too lazy to make it nicer x_x* Definite :+fav: on this :D
