Celebrating sunny days at the beach! Seaside is a lovely patchwork-style tapestry featuring a boat, 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+.
Each Seaside 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 useful for beginners as they can concentrate on stitching without having to hold the canvas at the same time.
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)
