Woodland Owls is our newest needlepoint Christmas stocking and features a cosy group of owls gathered together with their friend robin in their favourite oak tree on Christmas Eve. Their other pals the donkey, the deer, cat, chicken, goose, partridge and Jack Russell have all come to wish them a merry Christmas. In the distance, a village awaits Santa’s visit.
Woodland Owls will appeal to any member of the family – boy or girl, young or old.
If you will be stitching a tapestry stocking for more than one member of a family, note that Woodland Owls is the same size as our other boot shaped Christmas stocking kits: Dreaming of Christmas, Puppies, Christmas Love Hearts, Noah’s Christmas, Santa and Evergreen.
Woodland Owls stocking tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Reference chart
- Additional chart, with instructions for planning the name panel
- Generous supply of Anchor tapestry wool
- Reference chart
- Stitch instructions for half cross and tent stitch
Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but will 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.
Woodland Owls stocking will fit on a CF189 or CF1812 frame if you trim the canvas slightly at the edges. Choose a larger frame (a 21″ or 24″ one) if you think you might stitch larger (wider) projects in the future.
Printed canvas area: 16″ x 12″ (41cm x 30cm) at tallest/widest points
