  • 2. Backstitch design using one strand of DMC 310 Black.
  • 3. Finish into pillow or mat and frame as desired.
  • Tip
  • 1. To ensure stitches are always made in the same direction, make a loop at one corner of fabric. Mark that corner on the chart. This way you will always have the design right side up.
