1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / How to fluff up my cross-stitch, for lack of better words on: April 24, 2011 10:18:34 PM
Well well! first post.

I'm cross-stitching a portrait of a close friend -- my first large project. As an amateur, my stitches are getting rather bumpy and lumpy and uneven, especially in areas dense with different colors. Is there perhaps some quick n easy method of smoothing it all out when the project is done? Perhaps steaming will flatten the loose stitches whilst thickening up the tight ones? Would ironing it face down with steam even out the stitches? I'm rather self-taught, I'm afraid.
