Opal Fruits were the stuff of 70's car journeys from Jacqui's childhood. NO holiday was complete without them.. then someone changed their name to Star Burst and nothing was ever the same. But in 2021 they have changed them back. Jacqui has paid homage to the original in this classic bolster design... and yes they were 4p!
90x20cm finished tapestry size ** same size as the CURLY WURLY
As a long kit this is perfect to be made up as a draught excluder or super long bolster cushion. You can also frame it as a permanent tribute to it's chewy delights!

We use quality Zweigart canvas. We think that this is the best quality canvas you can buy. The HPI are the number of holes per inch on a straight line within the canvas. Our 7hpi tapestry base has the largest holes and is the easiest to stitch
We give you plenty of Appleton brothers 4 Ply Tapestry. Enough to stitch with the recommended stitch technique. Our wool is 100% British Virgin Wool - and it is the same wool as used by William Morris in his heritage designs, which is bought directly from source and hand twisted into hanks in our Studio.
Instructions & Chart Full instructions are also provided including detailed stitch charts and stitching diagrams, teaching you the basics of cross stitch techniques.
*PLEASE NOTE: The kit is a COUNTED CROSS STITCH chart and is not printed on the canvas - so each coloured square corresponds to the same colour cross stitch on the canvas. This provides for a more accurate finished stitched piece.
