We were a big hit at an office recently. One of our customers told people in their office about NeedlePaint and our custom needlepoint canvases…
Within 3 days, we had 3 dog pillow needlepoint canvases under way!
We all agreed that 12.25″ x 12.25″ will make a good size pillow, and the pillow forms are easily available at JoAnn Fabrics or Michaels.
From there, we stuck to 14 point mesh since it will be faster to stitch on this size canvas. And then the fun started…
I was thinking that it would be cool just to put the dog’s profile on the pillow and remove the background (this will be faster to stitch, too). We also added borders as to frame the image, and this was a big hit!
In the end, we had three completely different designs!
#1. The original image and original background, with a double border
#2. The dog’s face, with name below the face
#3. The dog’s profile, with a simple border and green background
They all are special, and it was fun. I have designed another fun background and will be happy to do more, just email me your ideas!
All three needlepoint canvases are under way right now, so we are waiting for images, but I’m guessing it will be a few more months. One of the needlepointers just emailed me an image of their last kit we made for them!
