The pattern depicts the autumnal leaves with yellows, burnt oranges and reds. The design area is 27.5cm x 47.5cm so when made up in to a cushion you can use a standard 30cm x 50cm cushion insert, which will make it look really plump. Featured is Fall on Green; there are three other background colours to choose from. The kit contains a fully colour printed 12 hpi zweigart canvas, all the wool to complete the project, a needle, instructions, black and white chart, along with a full colour version to help you along. The kit costs £61.50 including VAT. +44 (0)8434 793 071 GROVES New to the ever-growing Trimits craft kits collection are these charming seasonal embroidery floss punch needle hoop kits; these are the perfect introduction to the art of needle punching or a fun little project to the more experienced punch needler.
