NeedlePoint Kits and Canvas Designs | Design your own Needlepoint Kit!

A while back, a customer contacted us about our tiger needlepoint canvas that we sell on etsy (look at our “animal” needlepoint section).  They loved the design, but prefer work on 12 mesh and wanted a much larger design to make a needlepoint pillow.

We ended up making a 15 inch wide by 11.25 inch high custom needlepoint canvas.  Since the customer prefers to stitch with wool, we included 1 skein of each color matched to the original photo, to help her purchase the correct colors from her local shop.

Really, this blog is about the stitching, not the words, so check out her work!

This is the preview of needlepoint design on 18 mesh canvas, a photo needlepoint project that comes out beautifully.  Thanks for the pics and your great stitching Joanne!!!

Please note, we do often adjust color palates to match animals better, so if you notice any colors you want adjusted with a design you are thinking about ordering, just let us know and we’ll be sure we make them.

      Hi Joseph,

      Thanks for getting in touch! I apologize in the delay in getting back to you.

      We don’t currently have a large Tiger design (20 x 24) on our website, but if you had a picture of a tiger that you like, we could create a custom canvas through our self-design program.

      You can easily download your photo into our “self-design” program on our website:

      Here you can choose your:

      canvas size (have your photo cropped where you want it before downloading)
      canvas mesh count (10, 12, 14, or 18)
      how many colors you would like to use

      and choose type of thread: (optional, if you don’t want thread you can delete it at checkout) DMC embroidery floss (for mesh size 14 and 18) and Waverly wool (for mesh size 10, 12, and 14)

      Under “create a project”: go to the select a product pull down menu, and choose “needlepoint canvas”.

      If you need help with downloading your photo, we would be happy to help you.

      Please feel free to contact Caroline at: for further assistance.
