How to Use

DMC Soft Cotton is ideal for wall tapestries, and especially suited to for children’s projects. For cushion covers which undergo more wear and tear, it is better to use tent stitch. This stitch creates a firm weave at the back of the canvas which in turn helps to strengthen the end product. Ideally stretch your canvas on a frame while working to keep its shape and ensure even stitching.
