The Tennis Ball Thief RED

£38.50£77.00

The Tennis Ball Thief is a wonderful design for lovers of Jack Russell terriers. Our Arts and Crafts inspired design features four mischievous Jack Russells, ignoring juicy strawberries in favour of a far more terrier-style prize – tennis balls!

Our red Tennis Ball Thief tapestry is another colourway for our original Tennis Ball Thief design. The rich wine coloured background looks fabulous with greens and terracottas.

The Tennis Ball Thief is also available in our original blue colourway. Choose the colour that best suits your home, or buy one of each for different rooms or seasonal changes.

Anyone who has a Jack Russell will be all too aware of their obsession with tennis balls, as well as the near impossible job of trying to retrieve a ball from the mouth of your feisty little Jack once he or she has possession of it.

Our new Tennis Ball Thief tapestry is another colourway for our original blue Tennis Ball Thief design. The rich wine coloured background looks fabulous with greens and terracottas.

The Tennis Ball Thief is wonderful to stitch, with so many areas of interest in the dogs and the foliage. Stitch the background as you go. We recommend saving some areas to fill in while watching TV, perfect for cold and wet weekends and evenings.

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but does help to prevent your work going out of shape and 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 take only a few minutes to assemble. The canvas is attached by easy clips (and not sewn on), enabling you to switch between projects if necessary.

For The Tennis Ball Thief, we recommend either a CF249 or a CF2412 tapestry frame.
