Discover your crafty side with the latest celebrity deco craze

Need to chill out? Take your lead from Taylor Swift and Julia Roberts and petit point away your cares

Few things are better at restoring your calm than an all-absorbing, meditative activity. But what if your relaxing new hobby could also be used to create beautiful boxes or wall hangings for your home – or even gifts? 

Petit point – an ultra-fine version of canvas embroidery, and arguably the new knitting and macramé in one – is the latest interiors and deco craft that’s a surefire way to rediscover your inner Zen. And there are few easier ways to skill up on your needlepoint know-how than the new kits from We Are Knitters.

Sakura Petit Point Kit, £59, We Are Knitters

You won’t find any chintzy samplers here: instead the collection is filled with Japanese-inspired scenes, from mountainous landscapes accented with cherry blossom to bobbing paper lanterns.

Tourou Petit Point Kit, £59, We Are Knitters

What’s even better is that each one has everything you need included, from mini skeins of pima cotton and canvas, to pattern and needle. There are four skill levels – beginner, easy, intermediate and advanced – so whether you’re a beginner or more of an expert, you’ll find a kit to suit.

Maiko Petit Point Kit, £59, We Are Knitters

What could be better than taking your time to create a soothing koi pattern or even a beautifully balanced geometric? They’re also both perfect for turning into a colourful handmade cushion or decorative panel. Stitching has never been so soothing.
