A mini seaside tapestry to frame or make into the centre of a cushion. Seaside is a cute starter tapestry kit, suitable for a beginner or a quick project for a more experienced stitcher. Each Seaside starter tapestry kit contains a colour printed canvas, whole skeins of Anchor wool, a needle and threader, an alphabet chart, and clear instructions.

Seaside starter kit is a lovely tapestry for beginners. Celebrating sunny days at the beach, it features a yacht, a seagull, two fish and a starfish in bright, nautical colours. Once stitched, Seaside makes a unique handmade decoration for a seaside-themed room or bedroom. Seaside is suitable for beginners or is a quick project for more experienced stitchers.

There will be plenty of spare wool to use if you intend to extend the design and personalise the border for a special occasion.

Once stitched, Seaside can be framed as a picture, used as the centre of a larger cushion, or made into the centre of a tapestry bag.

As a rough age guide, Seaside is suitable for children age 7+.

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but we do recommend that beginners use a frame it will enable them to concentrate on stitching, and let the frame do the job of holding the canvas.

For Seaside starter kit, we recommend a CF129 tapestry frame. Choose one of the larger frames (CF189, CF219 or CF249), ie one with code ending in '9' if you intend to stitch larger projects in the future. These will allow you to attach a canvas wider than 12".

Design Size

Printed canvas area: 4" x 4" (10cm x 10cm), canvas size 10" x 10" (25cm x 25cm)

Choosing a Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but is useful for beginners as they can concentrate on stitching without having to hold the canvas at the same time. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.

For Seaside, 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)
