Surf Bus Campervan Tapestry (or Cross Stitch) Cushion Cover Chart – Digital Download – PDF


As you may have gathered we love Classic Campervans!

This Surf Bus Tapestry was designed by my Dad and I’m so proud of it (and him!)

We made our finished tapestry into a cushion front but of course you could make it into anything you like!

Our instructions (for the tapestry only) are based on a finished canvas size of approximately 16″/40cm square.

For our original design we used 10HPI tapestry canvas and Rico Essentials Cotton Yarn which is actually a double knit weight yarn rather than a cross stitch or tapestry yarn.  Ours came from Wool Warehouse.

We used 8 colours in total (though our van was the same colour as the sky so you may want to alter this for your own design and use 9 colours instead).

To make your tapestry you will need:

1 Sky Blue 22 metres * (Rico 27, Light Blue)

2 Turquoise 11 metres (Rico 33, Turquoise)

3 Teal 58 metres (Rico 40, Dark Teal)

4 Navy 33 metres (Rico 38, Navy)

5 White 61 metres (Rico 80, White)

6 Black 27 metres (Rico 90, Black)

7 Orange 5 metres (Rico 75, Terra)

8 Sky Blue 22 metres * (Rico 27, Light Blue)

9 Denim Blue 23 metres (Rico 85, Dark Jeans)

We used 10HPI tapestry canvas which was  18″/46cm square.  That meant we had enough spare canvas around the edge of the design to stitch it onto a backing.

The chart is sized so that you can print it out on A4 paper and is split into quarters making it easier to read (although there is a page included showing whole image).  If you find it easier you can always stick the 4 pages together.

The great bit about digital downloads is that you can save them and reprint them as many times as you like!

Happy Sewing!
