Indian Elephants

£35.00

An exotic Indian Elephants tapestry kit, in rich jewel colours. Fun to stitch, and once stitched the elephants canvas can be made into the centre panel of a larger cushion or folded to make a specs case.

Indian Elephants is a richly patterned tapestry, fun to stitch and an absorbing small project. Though small in size, Indian Elephants is a versatile design, and once completed you can make your tapestry into a specs case, the centre of a larger cushion or a panel for a bag.

We made the Indian Elephants in our picture into a cushion with a maroon velvet border for a luxurious feel.

Kit Contents

Each Indian Elephants 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 Indian Elephants, 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.
