Jolly Red A-Z Animlas N for Nocturnal needlepoint, a cosy night time scene to stitch for a child’s bedroom. An owl and bats in the centre, with a hedgehog, badger and foxes in the border. Alphabet and numbers charts included along with tips for planning the name panel.
A-Z Animals N for Nocturnal tapestry is a compact 'N' birth sampler to stitch for a new baby or a young child. N for Nocturnal celebrates night time and nocturnal animals. The tapestry scene features an owl, two bats hanging from branches, a hedgehog, two foxes and a badger. There are also two newts, and stars in the corners with numbers 1-4 in them. N for Nocturnal will add a cosy touch to any nursery.
N for Nocturnal has space to either stitch a large single name using the large lettering provided, or to add more details, eg date of birth and/or birth weight using the smaller alphabet. Frame your finished tapestry as a picture or make into the centre of a larger cushion, or make a book bag for a favourite bedtime book.
Each Jolly Red A-Z Animals N for Nocturnal tapestry kit comes with a fully recyclable red woven-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 (size 20)
- Stitch instructions for half cross and tent stitch
Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but using one can 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. The canvas is attached by strong clips, enabling you to easily switch projects if necessary.
For the A-Z Animals tapestry kits, we recommend a CF189 tapestry frame, as a smaller CF129 will be a bit of a squeeze. Click to see our range of tapestry clip frames, from 12” – 24” wide.
TRAVEL TIP: If going on holiday, just take out the side bars and roll up your canvas - hey presto, ready to travel. Remember to pack the entire frame and your wool!
Printed canvas area: 7.5" x 7.5" (19cm x 19cm)
