You can stitch them on aida or on even weave, which will help you work the factional stitches. The cross stitch dogs download is an A4 PDF with 10 cross stitch dogs including the Jack Russell cross stitch pattern you can see in our main image, as well as an accompanying key to help you stitch the cross stitch dogs.
