Once you get the hang of it, cross stitching is really easy. The best way to start (at least it was for me) is to get one of the stamped kits - you can find them at Walmart, Michaels, Joanns, and probably some other places too. Those are the ones where the fabric already has the color image on it - you just have to match up your color of yarn to the color stamped on the fabric. The fabric used for cross stitching is usually Aida fabric (or something similar), where you are actually putting your needle through the holes in the fabric instead of through the threads of the fabric itself. Once you get the basics down, you can typically move on to counted cross stitch, which is where your pattern is on a piece of paper and you are using non-stamped fabric.

What kind of cross stitch bag do you have? Something with a design already on it?
