Carnation Tile canvas
Printed canvas only
This very simple design appeared in my book Victorian Needlepoint (now Arts and Crafts Needlepoint). Inspired by a William De Morgan tile and printed on rug canvas (7/8 gauge) it is quick and satisfying to stitch. It would make a perfect project for someone wondering if needlepoint is for them.
The stitched piece makes a pretty scatter cushion. The cushions shown here are stitched in cross stitch, using one thread of Appleton tapestry wool. Sewn together as a rug the designs look deceptively complex.
The canvas is printed with design colours only, greens, yellows and red in only 6 colours, so it would be very simple to adapt to your own colour scheme.
