Description

Stitch up this classic color combo of navy, red, cream and taupe with any initial of your choosing. This listing is a do-it-yourself needlepoint kit which is great for beginners or experienced stitchers. The varsity font would make it a great gift for a new (or old) high school/college graduate, as a dorm room accent, or just to add a special personalized touch to any room. The classic check backing fabric with piping complements the front design perfectly ('pillow kit' option must be chosen to including backing fabric - see details below). Sized at 10"x10", it's big enough to get noticed, but small enough that you can finish stitching it in a timely manner. Stitched in durable 100% wool, this keepsake will last for many years. If you are interested in a different colour combo - perhaps to match a favourite school or team - contact me and I may be able to customize it.

This item has two options with two different prices:

1) CANVAS & WOOL option includes:

• Outline of chosen letter hand-stitch painted onto 12 count Zweigart interlock canvas. Design is 10"X10" (25 cm X 25 cm) with a canvas cut of 13"x13" (33cm x 33cm). Hand-stitch painting means you know exactly where each stitch goes making the needlepointing process easier, quicker and more accurate.

• Generous amounts of Appleton 4 ply tapestry 100% wool. Spun and dyed in Buckinghamshire, England, Appleton has been producing high quality wool for 178 years. I love the durability and the shades of Appleton, and, nothing beats the look and feel of 100% wool. Tapestry wool does not need to be split - you just thread and stitch, it covers the canvas perfectly and provides very even tension;

• Step-by-step photo instructions on how to needlepoint using the recommended stitches. These very detailed instructions will get a beginner up and stitching and include all the information you need to complete the design.

• Paper pattern: Full colour 11” x17” chart with symbols.

• Size 20 tapestry needle and threader.


2) PILLOW KIT option includes:

• ALL OF THE ABOVE plus:

• Check design fabric backing and matching piping;

• Detailed photo instructions on how to finish into a pillow with piping using hand-sewing (no sewing machine necessary). You only need basic sewing skills to finish into a pillow.

• Hand-sewing needle and matching thread;

• NOTE: To keep shipping costs down, the pillow insert/cushion form is not included in the Pillow Kit option. A 10"x10" pillow insert will fit this design and can be found at most craft and fabric stores.

The pillow shown in the images was completed using the tent stitch, one of the easiest needlepointing stitches out there. Of all the needlecrafts, I find needlepointing to be the most enjoyable and the least frustrating. It’s therapeutic, relaxing, super easy to master and electronics-free. You can get a lot of thinking done while needlepointing (or, in my case, watch a lot of baseball)! I always stitch up all my designs before listing them in my store. That way you can see how the finished product will actually look like.

Yes! I supply printed or hand-painted canvases with my kits (with one exception www.etsy.com/listing/385954684) -- it's like paint-by-numbers except with wool – so they are great for beginners. The designs are simple, clear and don’t use a ton of colors so they are easier to stitch and don’t take forever to finish!
