A mini ‘P’ birth sampler tapestry to stitch for a new baby or a young child. Everybody loves pandas, and this one is happily chomping its way through bamboo leaves. In the borders there is a patchwork of polka dots, pencils, poppies and pears.
P for Panda 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 P for Panda 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 sidebars 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 a code ending in ‘9’ if you are likely to stitch cushion sized designs in the future.
