I am looking for a canvas of a cavalier - preferably one with puppies - to needlepoint and then sew into a pillow. Since I have all four colors of dogs, I really don't care if it's a tri, blenheim, ruby, or black and tan. It can also be a single dog and doesn't have to be puppies, although that would be my preference. Can any of you crafty people out there help me find one? I can get the yarns at a shop near me. They just didn't have any printed cavalier canvases - almost every other dog, but no cavies. Thanks.

If you google Cavalier needlepoint canvas there are actually quite a few available, it's just a matter of picking a design you like!!


This one is actually ready made not a kit, but it's gorgeous!!

I love needlepoint too, so was intrigued by your enquiry. I just searched on Cavalier needlepoint in Easysearch and came up with a lot of hits, such as these

I would like to get into needlepoint! How hard is it to start? And what supplies would I need?! Thanks!

My sister tried to get me into needlepoint b/c its quite calming. I started but I think it takes practice. I messed up some. Actually a lot :)

I am on the road but I've found some before b/c I wanted my sister to do something.

Ruby seems hardest to find (sorry nicki)

I am into easy and I found the best iron ons. They look great but don't know what to do.

For some reason, when I tried a search before I wasn't coming up with much. After all of your suggestions, this time I tried putting in "Cavalier needlepoint kits" and came up with much more. I found this site http://barbararusselldesigns.com/browse.html but I'm waiting to hear back from her about how expensive the canvases are since I want to do the needlepoint myself. Although some of those already made Agatha and Louise pillows of all of puppies are sooo cute. Thanks so much for all of your suggestions.
