Z for Zebra

£33.00

Z for Zebra needlepoint birth sampler to stitch for a baby or young child .

Product Description

A stunning Z for Zebra tapestry, with a zebra against a zigzag background. To celebrate the arrival of a new baby or for a young child’s birthday there’s plenty of space to stitch a large single name, or a more names and birth details, eg date of birth and/or birth weight.

Once stitched, you can frame your finished zebra tapestry as a picture or make it into the centre of a larger cushion, or make a personalised book bag for a favourite bedtime book.

Kit Contents

Each Z for Zebra tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:

  • Colour printed canvas (12hpi)
  • Reference chart
  • Additional alphabet and numbers chart, with instructions for planning the name panel
  • 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 will help to prevent your canvas from going out of shape. A frame also makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a tried and tested range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which are quick to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, you can easily switch projects if necessary. If going on holiday, just take off the side bars and roll up your canvas – hey presto, ready to travel.

For the A-Z Animals tapestry kits, we recommend a CF189 tapestry frame, as a smaller CF129 will be a bit of a squeeze. Choose a larger frame with code ending in ‘9’ if you are likely to stitch cushion sized designs in the future.
