I worked on this puppy needlepoint canvas with a customer last week, and had to share it!
We cropped the image, and changed the background to be all blue and green. The size was 13.3 inches by 9.2 inches, on 14 mesh zweigart canvas. We also changed some of the floss colors on the puppy to off whites and browns to match the photo better.
What is great about this picture is how close up it is, and of course the puppy, it will be an amazing pillow when it is finished!
