Item details

This 13" x 13" initial needlepoint design features a two-toned greek key border and comes in five different colours on a cream background. Kit is do-it-yourself and is stitched in durable 100% tapestry wool. Customize to any letter.

Canvas has the greek key border and your chosen letter hand-stitch painted onto the mesh. This means each intersection is painted one colour so it is very easy to stitch. Hand stitch painted canvases make the needlepointing process quicker, more accurate and stress-free as you know exactly where each stitch goes (this is very important when stitching a precise geometric border such as this one).

Choose upper-case letter and colour at checkout. Wool colours to choose from include blue, green, black/grey, purple or pink (as shown in photos). Two tones of each colour are used in the border with the darker shade used for the initial. The background colour on all designs is cream. The canvas is painted in black to stitch the darker tone, and grey for the lighter tone.

This item has two options with two different prices - see drop down menu under options above:

1) PAINTED CANVAS ONLY OPTION:

• Border and chosen letter hand-painted in black/grey onto 12 hpi interlock canvas: Design is 158 x 158 stitches and measures approx. 13" x 13" (33x33cm). Canvas is 16"x16" (40.5x40.5cm)

• Stitching diagrams on how to work the recommended tent stitches (entire design uses same stitch). If you plan to purchase your own wool, I specify the recommended colours and brand as well as the yardage needed.


2) PAINTED CANVAS & WOOL OPTION:

• ALL OF THE ABOVE, plus:

• Wool: I supply generous amounts of Appleton 4 ply tapestry 100% wool. Spun and dyed in Buckinghamshire, England, Appleton has been producing high quality wool for 180 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;

• Design hand-painted onto 12 hpi interlock canvas: Design is 158 x 158 stitches and measures approx. 13" x 13" (33x33cm). Canvas is 16"x16" (40.5x40.5cm)

• Pattern: Colour symbol 11” x17” chart.

• Instructions: Four 8.5” x11” pages of instructions with enough detail to get a beginner up and running. Includes clear and simple diagrams on how to work the very simple tent stitch, which is a single sloping stitch and is used for the entire design.

• And lastly, the most important item; a size 20 tapestry needle plus threader.

Note: This kit does NOT include pillow insert, backing material or piping.

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!
