To  learn these different designs first draw the design on a piece of cloth and try to follow the steps outlined below.  These are more advanced embroidery designs.  All embroidery pieces are made of various combinations and variations of the designs shown below:

Draw the picture on a piece of cloth for practice.

Follow the instructions in the picture on the left.

The bottom row in the picture on the left is the finished product. I call this design star and cross becuase it looks like a star and cross.

This picture is a combination of designs.   As you can see, in the first row the crosses are on the top side. In the second row, the crosses are alternated.  In the third row, the crosses are on both sides.  In the fourth row the crosses again are alternated.  Each row is a variation of the first row.

Here, each row has its own design.  The basic stitch is the same as all the others.
