Alhambra Stars

£35.00

Alhambra Stars is a glowing patchwork-style needlepoint design of stars, hearts and stripes, in wonderful rich colours. Once stitched, your tapestry can be made into the centre panel of a cushion or bag, or fold in half as a specs.

Stitch yourself some stars! Alhambra Stars is a versatile tapestry design. Its small size makes it an ideal holiday project. When complete make your Alhambra Stars into a specs case, the centre of a larger cushion or a panel for a bag.

The Alhambra Stars in our picture has been made into a bag with purple velvet for a luxurious feel.

Kit Contents

Each Alhambra Stars tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:

  • Colour printed canvas (12hpi)
  • Reference chart
  • Generous supply of Anchor tapestry wool
  • John James tapestry needle
  • Stitch instructions for half cross and tent stitch

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but does help to prevent your work going out of shape and makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.

For Alhambra Stars, we recommend either a CF189 frame, or choose a CF219 or CF249 frame if you might stitch something larger in the future. A 12" frame might be a bit of a squeeze.
