Home Sweet Home is a wonderful small tapestry to stitch for your own home, or to give as a handmade gift . Home Sweet Home is a great first tapestry project for beginners, and is lovely to stitch to celebrate a new home, a wedding…or any occasion at all. Hens, hearts and a lucky horseshoe all in one mini tapestry.
All Jolly Red starter kits have a 3″ border of plain canvas around the printed design, to allow for the designs to be personalised.
Home Sweet Home tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Eight skeins of Anchor tapestry wool (not cut lengths)
- Needle threader
- Stitch instructions for half cross stitch
- Chart and instructions for planning chart for lettering/dates (optional)
Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but will help to prevent work going out of shape and makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. Children may find it easier to concentrate if they aren’t also having to physically hold on to their tapestry as they stitch.
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 Home Sweet Home, a CF129 frame is a good size. If you may want to stitch a larger design in the future, choose one of the wider frames with code ending in ‘9’ and place your canvas in the centre of the frame when you stitch it.
Printed design area: 4″ x 4″ (10cm x 10cm)
Actual canvas size: 10″ x 10″ (25cm x 25cm)
