Needlepoint Sweetie Pillow Kit – Little Canyon #2
The Sweetie Pillows are mini needlepoint kits – quick projects that make a perfect gift or treat for complete beginners.
The Sweetie Pillows are mini needlepoint kits – quick projects that make a perfect gift or treat for complete beginners. Based on a 16th Century Elizabethan accessory, each gift kit comes with everything you need to make a complete sweetie pillow.
Inspired by Native American & Mexican textiles, Little Canyon #2 is a stunning six colour needlepoint kit using top quality 100% wool super-soft and colourfast yarns. The design is printed onto the canvas using eco-friendly water-based inks and consists of a palette of natural earth colours from rich shades of burnt umber and yellow ochre, through to sandy beige, olive greens and creamy white to produce a design that is calm with a natural feel.
The 12hpi (holes per inch) canvas offers quality detailing and by using basketweave tent stitch (or any stitch you prefer) the pillow can be made up into a beautiful, hard wearing mini-cushion, pin cushion or herb pillow by adding lavender or chamomile.
Each kit contains:
- Hand signed and numbered packaging with a unique machine stitched closure
- 11.5 x 11.5cms (4.5 x 4.5 inches) 12 hpi (holes per inch) Zweigart canvas with printed design and colour key for you to make a shade card
- Ample quantities of Anchor Tapisserie yarn
- Gold plated size 18 needlepoint/ tapestry needle
- Lightly textured needlecord fabric for backing
- Pure white pillow filler
- A sewing needle and plenty of cotton thread
- Full instructions
- Full colour image of the final piece and a detailed image for your reference
These kits are a great taster for the cushion kits. The designs have been adapted from the full sized cushion so you can be sure that if you enjoy stitching your little kit, you will love the full-size cushion!
