Often people ask what size their needlepoint canvas should be for their project. We recommend sizes that are commonly available in stores as picture frames. This project was one of them, and the customer created needlepoint designs to fit in 8 x 10 inch picture frames.
We shipped two custom needlepoint kits to her, and what I really love, is how she used a multiple image frame for the one with her boy The second photo has less reflection and show her needlepoint much better. Simple custom needlepoint designs look great!
In case you are wondering, the most common frame sizes are:
For Rectangles: 5 x 7, 6 x 8, 8 x 10, 8.5 x 11, 9 x 12, 11 x 14
For Squares: 8 x 8, 10 x 10, and 12 x 12
