Helpful plastic canvas tips!

As you stitch, try to maintain an even tension on the yarn. Loose stitches will look uneven, and tight stitches will let canvas show through. If your yarn twists as you work, you may want to let your needle and yarn hang and untwist occasionally. Do not carry yarn across the back from one section of a color to the next. Carrying yarn across the back can cause the piece to bow or colors to show through to the front. When you end a section of stitching or finish a thread, weave the yarn through the back side of your last few stitches, then trim it off. Work embroidery stitches over needlepoint stitches after canvas piece if filled in.
