I usually sell these canvases as kits or the canvas alone but this handsome design uses so many blues it challenged my enormous inventory of colors to come up with the right shades.
I thought, perhaps, I should list this just as a kit. Intdigo Cats is an original, hand painted Laurel Burch design. it is hand signed by Ms. Burch.
The design area measures 11 X 14.25 inches. The entire canvas is 15 X 18 inches. It is 14 mesh.
I have assembled this kit using DMC #5 Perle Cotton Floss and Kreinik Gold Metallic Braid Thread in size 16. This design uses 13 colors, 9 of which are shades of blue.
The picture of the threads is just to show you the colors, the kit actually includes 19 skeins and 4 spools of gold.
I have sent plenty (and more) to finish this project since with this many blues, dye lots will matter.
The canvas should be stitched using 1 strand of floss or Metallic Braid.
All NewNeedlepoint canvases have folded and machine hemmed edges or carefully taped canvases edges. Which one depends on how much white canvas is left outside the design area.
Each kit includes the correct size needle for this canvas.
The amounts of floss or yarn shown in the pictures are for color only, the actual amounts sent may vary from what is shown. The colors will not vary (at least not very much).
Needlepoint thread coverage is not an exact science. I try to make sure there is plenty to finish each canvas with some to spare. If you run short e-mail me and I will send you more at no extra cost.
Remember to stitch 2-3 additional rows all around the completed canvas for finishing.
Large needlepoint canvases will be rolled and sent in a mailing tube,smaller canvases will be sent flat in a padded envelope.
