Farmer Bear is a lovely design for a country-loving child, with a bear and his friendly sheep out on the farm while a red tractor is in the field behind them. Farmer Bear is suitable for all levels of stitcher including beginners as well as being a lovely quick project for more experienced stitchers. There will be plenty of spare wool to use if you intend to extend the design and personalise the border for a special occasion.
The completed needlepoint can be framed as a picture or used as the centre panel of a larger cushion.
As a rough age guide, Farmer Bear is suitable for children age 7+.
Each Farmer Bear 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 is useful for beginners as novice stitchers can concentrate on stitching without having to hold the canvas at the same time.
For Farmer Bear, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the larger frames with code ending in ‘9’ if you think you will stitch larger projects in the future.
