Rainbow Heart is the perfect starter tapestry for a young child, and the simple striped background and pink heart will help to build their confidence as they stitch. Once the design is stitched, there will be lots of spare wool so that the border can be extended and personalised with patterns, stripes and/or a name.
Your finished tapestry can be made into the centre of a larger cushion, framed as a picture or made into a panel of a book bag.
As a rough age guide, Rainbow Heart is suitable for children age 7+.
Each Rainbow Heart tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Eight whole skeins of Anchor tapestry wool
- Reference chart with additional alphabet chart, and instructions
- John James tapestry needle
- Needle threader
- Clear instructions for half cross stitch
Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but is a good idea for beginners as it leaves both hands free for stitching.
For Rainbow Heart, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the larger frames with code ending in ‘9’ if you think you will stitch larger projects in the future.
Printed canvas area: 4″ x 4″ (10cm x 10cm), canvas size 10″ x 10″ (25cm x 25cm)
