O for Owls A-Z Animals tapestry kit is a lovely mini 'O' birth sampler tapestry to stitch for a new baby or a young child. The design shows a cosy scene of three owls against a starry night sky, with odd numbers, oak leaves and oval shapes in the borders and corners. O for Owls will add a warm, timeless touch to any nursery.

O for Owls 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.

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential but using one will help to prevent your work going out of shape. It also 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. The canvas is attached by sturdy clips, giving you the flexibility to switch between projects if you need to.

For the A-Z Animals tapestry kits, we recommend an 18" 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.

See all our tapestry clip frames in our Frames and Accessories category.
