Custom Needlepont Dog Collar

We’ve been thinking of what other projects are great for custom needlepoint, and realized that the answer is laying at our feet!

A custom needlepoint dog collar can be beautiful and make a great gift for your furry friends.

Peggy is currently working on a project for her son who asked for a ‘tough looking’ collar for his male dog, Jack.

I worked on designing this and created a simple design that looks great!  And is very tough 🙂

Now, look again, and see how ‘tough’ becomes girly when I change the colors!

This project is just underway, we hope to have lots of designs and complete needlepoint dog collar kits on our Etsy needlepoint shop soon.  All designs are customizable, please contact us if you would like us to design your dog’s needlepoint collar!

Some ideas worth considering:  Stitch in a phone number, extra wide collars

Fun Needlepoint Pillow Ideas

I’ve been designing more needlepoint pillows for our ETSY shop.  It is pretty fun!  Taking some pretty simple ideas, and putting them with fun colors brings a fresh feeling.

Designing needlepoint kits on NeedlePaint.com is fun.  I just came up with a list of ideas, then started to design needlepoint canvases.

My list:  Snow Flakes, Christmas Ornament Needlepoint, Christmas Tree Needlepoint, Angels, Snow Man, Stars

Another fun experiment is below.  See how different these two identical designs feel!
