Round and round we go! Whirligigs tapestry is a patchwork of richly coloured circles, and is such an enjoyable design to stitch as the design grows before your eyes with each completed square and circle.
Once stitched, Whirligigs can be folded in half and made into a specs case. It could also be used as the centre of a larger cushion, or used as a panel in a tapestry bag.
Each kit contains
Each Whirligigs tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (12hpi)
- Reference chart
- Generous supply of Anchor tapestry wool
- 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, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.
For Whirligigs, we recommend either a CF189 frame or choose a CF219 or CF249 frame if you might stitch something larger in the future. A 12″ frame will be a bit of a squeeze.
