B for Birds is a beautiful and sunshine-filled letter ‘B’ tapestry with birds on branches, butterflies, boats and more birds in the borders. We’ve made a reference to the Goldilocks fairy tale with three bears and a porridge bowl in the corners of the border.
B for Birds is wonderful to stitch to celebrate the arrival of a bouncing baby. There’s space to stitch either a large single name, or to stitch more details, eg date of birth and/or birth weight. Lettering and numbers charts are included in the kit.
Frame your finished tapestry as a picture or make into the centre of a larger cushion, or make a book bag for a favourite bedtime book.
Each B for Birds tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (12hpi)
- Reference chart
- Additional alphabet and numbers chart, with instructions for planning the name panel
- 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 will help to prevent your canvas from going out of shape. A frame also makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a tried and tested range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which are quick to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, you can easily switch projects if necessary. If going on holiday, just take off the side bars and roll up your canvas – hey presto, ready to travel.
For the A-Z Animals tapestry kits, we recommend a CF189 tapestry frame, as a smaller CF129 will be a bit of a squeeze. Choose a larger frame with code ending in ‘9’ if you are likely to stitch cushion sized designs in the future.
