The Tennis Ball Thief, four mischievous Jack Russell terriers in an Arts and Crafts inspired needlepoint tapestry kit.

The Tennis Ball Thief is a fabulous design for lovers of Jack Russell terriers - and tennis too! Our Arts and Crafts inspired design features four mischievous Jack Russells, shunning juicy strawberries in favour of a far more exciting prize, tennis balls.

Anyone who has had a Jack Russell will be all too aware of the allure of the tennis ball, and good luck to you if you try to prize the ball from the mouth of your feisty little Jack once he or she has possession of it.

The Tennis Ball Thief is wonderful to stitch, with so many areas of interest and a beautiful blue background which is far nicer than a navy blue.

Kit Contents

The Tennis Ball Thief tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:

  • Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
  • Reference chart in black and white symbols

  • John James tapestry needle
  • Stitch instructions for half cross and tent stitch

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 only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips (and not sewn on), you are free to switch between projects if necessary.

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