White Floss Design Not Showing on Aida Material

I am stitching a project on white aida material. For most of the design I am using dark blue. However there is a section that is white floss and it is not showing up. Any suggestions on how to make the white section show up?

Outstanding white on white designs are difficult to achieve and it usually takes more thread than the usual stitch.

  • There are different shades of white but you do have to be careful so that you do not end up with a slightly "dirty" looking design.
  • Someone at my club will occasionally have a white on white cross stitch pattern and this is one of their suggestions.
  • Try using thread called coton a broder, or broder coton, Perlé cotton, or broder special all names for the same thread. Coton a broder is a mercerized cotton thread thats non-divisible. In simple terms, it has a sheen to it and you cant break it down into separate usable threads.
  • You might ask about this when you visit the craft store.

You may need to use more strands of the white for complete coverage.

There are many varieties of a white color. Take your work to a craft store and check it against other whites.

There are many types of white cross stitch thread. Bring your work to a shop and search for a better match to the white.
