Should The Back Of Your Embroidery Look As Good As The Front? | Mr X Stitch

One of the biggest questions that faces a cross stitcher is how tidy the back of the work should be. So let's look into this: Short answer: no. Medium answer: it's nice if you can be careful with your craft and avoid easy mistakes. But no one ever died from having an untidy back on their embroidery. Long answer: Jamie "Mr X Stitch" Chalmers dispels the myth of the tidy back on embroidery to put your mind at ease. Using his infamous Back In Black pattern from the Mr X Stitch Guide to Cross Stitch, he'll explain that conscientious crafting can avoid the silent pain of having to unpick your work, but that the back of the work tells the story of the front of the work, and for that reason it has a beauty of it's own. So you can relax. Pug photo by Matthew Henry on Unsplash If you want to learn to cross stitch, there's only one book you need - The Mr X Stitch Guide to Cross Stitch!
