Details

This stunning Matisse-inspired design, created by Mariana Dimas can be stitched as a wall-hanging or as a cushion cover. It's a decorative piece that any Matisse lover will want!


Cushion Cover kit option:

This cushion needlepoint/tapestry products is kitted with 100% natural Merino wool, super soft and with an incredible texture and colors!

Canvas size: 41x41 cm (16x16in)
Canvas mesh size: 10 count (10 holes per inch)

The kits includes:

  • Artwork printed in a Zweigart canvas with 10 mesh count
  • Two Milward Nº 18 tapestry needles
  • Needlepoint booklet (key sections: how to start and library of favorite stitches)
  • Postal (size A5) with the artwork and respective thread color scheme identification.
  • Optional: our suggested selection of 100% natural Merino Wool by Rosarios4 (Merino 4 Us)

 

Suggested stitches for Cushion Cover:

  • For this design, we recommend using the tent stitch in the continental or basketweave version, to ensure a good coverage of the canvas and a strong finishing for a cushion cover.
  • If you opt to buy threads, you'll receive sufficient wool to complete the project in the continental tent stitch. If you intent to use basketweave stitch, please get in touch and we'll accommodate the necessary quantity without extra cost.

 

Other considerations:

  • This is a needlepoint kit and therefore does not include cushion pad, backing fabric, zip or piping.
  • The colors of the printed canvas and threads may vary a little from what you see on your monitor.

Product FAQs

Yes, absolutely! All kits come with a printed needlepoint booklet, which contains instructions on how to get started. We suggest to visit our "How to Needlepoint" page for videos tutorials and detailed instructions. Check also our Beginners collection, with the best projects for you to get started with Needlepoint!

Most of the needlepoint decorative stitches require less thread than the continental tent stitch.

Some of the few exceptions where you’ll need more thread are: Basketweave Tent stitch, Encroaching Gobelin, French knots.

If the decorative stitch you want to use contains sections that when stitching intersect with more than 1 hole, then most certainly it won’t require more thread than the continental tent stitch (with which you need to stitch every hole).

The larger the stitch is, the less thread will require!

We are more than happy to offer you all the extra threads you will need! Send us an email to hello@unwind.studio.

In the case you already know that you are going to use the basketweave stitch, please let us know in advance and we'll include more thread before shipping your package.

You don't need to use a needlepoint frame, but you can if you want!

This comes down to each stitcher’s personal preference, and you can easily stitch your needlepoint without a frame, if you don't have one. In this blog post we’ll show you the differences between stitching with and without a frame, and the advantages of each technique.

The first process is to apply Blocking to your finished canvas, in case it is distorted. Check our detailed blog post where we explain all the steps for blocking.

Then you need to select which finished product you want to obtain (ideally this needs to be considered before starting the stitching).
