How to sew a cross in a square without stopping (just pausing)08:00
Today I'm going to share with you how I sew my cross in a box stitch.
To begin with, you want your square to be...well, square. So go ahead and measure the distance between the two rows of stitching. I found mine to be spot on 1", so I marked two lines across the strap 1" away from each other with my tracing wheel.
Pivot so that you are facing the opposite corner to the one you are currently at. This should be the right hand corner as shown.
The final line to be stitched is the bottom of the box, sew along until you reach the opposite corner of the box and then stop with your needle down for our last pivot.
Arrows 1, 2, 3 & 7 form the outer box, 4 & 6 form the cross and 5 is simply a hallway line.
If you're still uncertain, try drawing it out on a piece of paper without lifting your pen up.
And for you pinterest lovers, here's a little graphic you can pin now and refer back to time and time again!
