I would like to cross stitch a 100x50 point design onto a T-shirt, but I'd like it to be small (4x2 inches approximately). This leaves me with a 25 count per inch design.
Ideally, I'd like to use waste fabric and pull it out after I'm done stitching. Is that feasible, or would I be better off stitching onto even weave and leaving it in?

I'm looking for anyone with experience in high inch-count cross stitching.

    Welcome to Arts & Crafts. I know nothing about cross stitching, but let me point out a couple of confusing points in the question you might want to check or clarify just in case they're confusing to others, also. 1. A 100x450 point design in 4x2 inches: the aspect ratios aren't the same, so the pattern would be distorted unless the stitches are different sizes in the two directions. Also, 25 count/inch doesn't seem right or consistent. 2. How would you remove fabric after you've sewn through it? This could all make perfect sense to cross stitchers, though. Good luck with this.

  • @fixer1234 good catch- I meant 100x50. The fabric removing thing makes sense for cross stitching- it’s common to add fabric on top the fabric you’re cross stitching to give yourself a sturdier canvas and a nice grid to stitch through Aug 20 at 22:28
