Villedieu red and blue tapestry kit

With this basketweave tapestry kit in red and blue tones, you will be abble to embroider a 20cm square cushion.
This pattern chart was inspired by the cement tiles which were very fashionable in France in the middle of the 19th century. Production of these tiles first developed on the outskirts of the first cement works, notably in the Ardèche region. This is why we have given names of towns and villages in the region to our patterns.

This pattern chart comprises three elements: an angle, a border and a central motif.

This kit contains:
- a 25cm square piece of mono canvas;
- the necessary Laine Saint-Pierre cards: 106 x 5, 534 x 4, 648 x 1, 690 x 3, 740 x 7;
- a full-colour pattern chart is printed on A3 paper and is accompanied by an explanation of basketweave stitch. If you have never tried needlepoint tapestry, this explanation is ideal for starting.

Backing fabric and stuffing are not supplied.

Presented in a lovely Sajou cardboard re-usable box.

The single pattern chart is also available here.

Tapestry is an excellent alternative to cross-stitch for those
who find their eyesight dwindling.
The warp and weft is much more visible making it quicker to sew.
