Coming up with cool ideas for needlepoint kits is not always easy. As great designs come in, I’m always amazed how creative people are!
From my side, I’ve always appreciated the internet for its ability to help spur great ideas, so going forwards, as we come across fantastic websites for needlepoint designs, we’ll put them in a specific category called ‘NeedlePaint Inspiration’.
So where to start?
I recently found a pretty fun website where artists put up their work, it is very modern and fun. http://tewi.us/tegaki/ I found this site via Mr X Stitch’s contemporary needlecraft blog. Also, we’ve had some traffic coming from Sprite Stitch, which is a website that people can show their love of stitching and older video games.
This site Tewi.us, is almost all animated images, so I pulled out a few colorful ideas to try on NeedlePaint.
The canvases came out really well, I did 12″ high, with 14 mesh, and all the kits use below 20 colors.
I did have one interesting thing to show to our users, which was on the violin player. Originally, the website selected 40 colors, (see left), but I figured that would be very hard, so I reduced it all the way to 11 colors and it still comes out great! (see right)
