Material for cross stitch gift tags


1. Iron the fabric

For a beautiful finish, iron it by all means😄
Place a towel on the ironing board and put the finished with the back side up.

Next, place a thin towel on top of the finished. Then iron with plenty of steam.

2. Cut the fabric

Cut out the both sides with pinking scissors along the outline for the gift tag.

3. Make fringes

To fringe the edges, remove two rows of weaving threads horizontally from the Aida fabric.
