Needlepoint Nouveau!  

Hippity Hoppity Easter’s On Its Way!

Written by Caroline

When our designer, Gwynn, created NeedlePaint’s Beatrix Potter Collection, I could not wait to stitch something. This collection is the epitome of sweet and classic, and the perfect homage to Beatrix Potter’s outstanding work. 

After burning out with several larger projects recently, I wanted something smaller with different finishing potential, so I picked out the Peter Rabbit Stand Up Kit. I requested to have the design printed on 14-count canvas—something we are always happy to do!—which changed the overall size to 5.2″ x 10”. In addition, when I received the canvas, I drew a rounded top.

I knew I wanted to focus on texture and keep my stitches simple,
so I headed to my local needlepoint shop (Stitch in Louisville, KY)
and they assisted me in pulling lots of different fibers based on the canvas:

Peter’s fur: Petite Very Velvet

Peter’s jacket: Silk & Ivory

Face details: DMC Perle Cotton #3

Grass: DMC Perle Cotton #3

Background: Vineyard Wool

I completed the foreground entirely in the basketweave stitch, but I am
impressed with how different each section appears in person because of the fiber type. 

I used my favorite old faithful background stitch: diagonal mosaic!
I love this stitch for its full coverage, but also its simplicity and quickness to stitch.

While NeedlePaint does not (yet!) offer stand-up finishing,
I was able to finish it through my local needlepoint shop,
and will treasure this for years to come —

especially every Easter!
