Official blog of – where you can design your own Needlepoint Kit!

The Christmas season is long anticipated all year by adults and children alike for the celebratory feeling that is nearly magical. Friends and families around the world gather to celebrate and enjoy the festivities of the season. With so much going on at Christmas time, it can take a long time to find something new and special each year to commemorate the day. Our custom needlepoint Christmas stockings are perfect for any Christmas lover.

Hanging a stocking is a long standing tradition dating back to a legend from the days of Saint Nicholas. It was said that he left gold in the stockings of people in his town on Christmas Eve. While you’d have to be really good all year to get gold in your stocking from Santa, the decoration is still a favorite of families around the world.

Our Christmas photo stocking needlepoint kit is a hit for those looking to craft something unique for the holidays. It can be customized with any design or photo, such as your children’s favorite movie characters, your husband’s favorite sports team, or your favorite pet. These stockings will look great for years and will always be something you and your family look forward to hanging up.

Seasoned scuba divers regularly see some of the most beautiful, rarely seen sights in the world underwater. Each dive is a chance to get away to a personal paradise and enjoy all of the beauty that nature has to offer. As most divers can attest to, a lot of time on land is spent thinking about the next dive. If you’re looking for a great reminder of your next adventure, look no further than the scuba diving needlepoint belt.

It’s important to have a few statement pieces in your wardrobe that show off your personality and spark up conversations. One of our most popular products, our custom needlepoint belts, is a great way to break away from the average dress belt and into something a little bit more fun. We decided to take that same idea and put create customized needlepoint wallets to add some color to an accessory you use every single day.


A spotlight on our custom monogram needlepoint wallets!

There are few accessories as perfect for needlepoint customization as wallets. The healthy surface area on the outside of the leather allows for big, colorful, and detailed designs showcasing whatever the owner’s favorite hobbies are, giving plenty of room for you to customize 100% of the wallet. One of our most popular styles is a custom needlepoint monogram wallet. Some choose to have a dual-sided monogram, while others go for a classic design like nautical flags or golf clubs.

Whether you’re looking for a way to spoil yourself, or the perfect way to spoil a loved one, our custom needlepoint wallets should do the trick. As always, our products are stitched by hand, just for you. If you prefer to stitch your own, we also provide custom wallet needlepoint canvas kits that make for a great project.


Sometimes, a momentous occasion, or the end of a long week, just simply must be celebrated with a stiff drink. Many times, we find ourselves wishing we had a quick way to add a little bit of our favorite libation to a drink when we’re relaxing on the beach, camping, or attending an event. Drinks are meant to be shared with friends and a custom needlepoint flask is the perfect way to start a conversation to go along with a drink.


Our needlepoint flasks can be 100% custom designed by you to ensure the personality shines through. Each flask can be designed with a simple monogram, a design of your choice, or a combination of both. Some of our most popular flask designs have been nautically themed, with anchors or burgee flags, animal themed, with dogs, deer, or birds, or a combination of interests and hobbies.

One of the most popular uses for this product is custom needlepoint flasks for weddings. The flasks make great gifts for groomsmen and can be customized to have a wedding design on one side, and each man’s monogram on the other, giving the groomsmen something they’ll be able to use for years to come that will remind them of their participation in the wedding.

Flasks are also a popular gift idea for formal events, date parties, or simply for the holidays. We’ve seen many fraternity brothers gift these flasks to each other as “big-little gifts,” or for birthdays and graduations.

No matter the occasion, we at Needlepaint can provide you the perfect design for your custom needlepoint flask. Check out some of the designs we’ve made and customize your own here!

Celebrating a marriage is undoubtedly not only an exciting time for the two people wedding, but it is a great time for others to celebrate their friends’ and families’ new chapter of life. It’s no secret that nearly every detail of a wedding ceremony can be planned, so sometimes it can be hard to find something special to add to an already perfect day.

Joanna, from Virginia, knew that she could add a little something special to a wedding day when she stitched a beautiful custom needlepoint pillow for the ring bearers to use during the ceremony.


Joanna took a rose idea and turned it into something beautiful! She artfully decorated the roses onto the pillow, with the perfect colors to really bring the roses to life. The names of the bride and groom are stitched nicely into the pillow and accented with a well tied bow underneath.

Needlepoint pillows for ring bearers are a unique way to add another bit of accent to a wedding. The gift is fun, unusual, and always loved. After the wedding, the pillows can serve as a decoration on the living room couch, a windowsill, or simply your bedroom.

You can shop for this canvas here and create your own rose pillow customized with the names of the bride and groom. We’re also happy to send you the pillow fully-stitched, ready to be used in your wedding or gifted.

Our needlepoint pillow designs are not limited to roses – look at all the designs we’ve worked on, or reach out to us to create your own custom canvas design or finished pillow.

If you haven’t already heard, we’re hosting a custom needlepoint belt giveaway with our long-time friend Carly of “The College Prepster” blog!

Carly Heitlinger is a preppy blogger who grew up in Florida, began blogging while studying at Georgetown, and now lives in New York City where she continues to find inspiration for her style. Her blog is full of great tips on what to wear, what to see, and what to do!

We recently collaborated with Carly on a custom belt showcasing the landmark sights of South Tampa for her father. Together with Carly, we brought her father’s favorite places to life: from the country club where he golfs, to the University of Tampa, to the high school campus that he and Carly both attended, the essence of each building is captured on the belt.




Carly says she is “obsessed” with the way that the belt came out and said that her “dad’s been wearing it a lot, and all his golf buddies are jealous.” We’re excited to hear that they both are enjoying it as much as we enjoyed making it!


Together with The College Prepster, we’re giving you the opportunity to win your very own custom Needlepaint belt. Simply visit Carly’s website here and enter the giveaway for your chance to win your very own custom belt.

Good luck!
