Our Elephant starter kit is a perfect tapestry kit for a beginner. The design starts with simple stripes along the bottom edge, and becomes more complex as the stitcher works his or her way up. Our Elephant starter kit is suitable for all levels of stitcher including beginners as well as being a lovely quick project for more experienced stitchers, growing in confidence as they progress through the design.
There will be plenty of spare wool to use to extend the design and personalise the border with patterns and/or a name.
Your completed Elephant tapestry can be framed as a picture or made into the centre of a larger cushion.
As a rough age guide, Elephant is suitable for children age 7+.
Each Elephant tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Eight whole skeins of Anchor tapestry wool
- Reference chart with additional alphabet chart, and instructions
- John James tapestry needle
- Needle threader
- Clear instructions for half cross stitch
Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but can be useful for beginners as having the canvas attached to a frame leaves hands free for stitching.
For Elephant, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the wider frames with code ending in ‘9’ if you think you may go on to stitch larger projects in the future.
