A gorgeous ‘J’ mini birth sampler tapestry to stitch for a new baby or a young child. J for Jungle tapestry features a giraffe and lion, with more animals in the leafy border. As with all the A-Z Animal tapestries the colours have been carefully chosen to give the design equal appeal to boys and girls.
J for Jungle has a blank area to either stitch a large single name using either the large lettering chart provided with the kit, or to add more details, e.g date of birth and/or birth weight using the smaller alphabet (also included).
Once stitched you can frame your finished tapestry as a picture or make into the centre of a larger cushion, or make it into a book bag for a favourite bedtime book.
Each J for Jungle 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.
