Have you been looking for the right design to needlepoint a Tallit Bag?

Well, why not consider doing a custom needlepoint project instead?  Attached is a picture of a tallis bag stitched by a customer in Montreal a few weeks back!  The art is special to them and it looks so good I’m sure it will live on through the family for generations to come!

We’ve helped design tallis bags for bar mitzvah gifts and personalized the needlepoint designs with names and favorite activities.

If you have an idea, you can contact us and we can help create it from scratch.  We’ll send you the digital preview for you to review and if you’re not happy with it, you don’t have to place the order!

Preppy Gingham Custom Dog Needlepoint Belt Design

I was at a wedding last week in Nantucket, and after going shopping and looking for ideas for needlepoint belts, I came across a lot of gingham patterns in the shops.

This idea had been lingering in the back of my mind, so when a customer wanted a poodle needlepoint belt, I decided to put in the time and make it happen.  While this is not the design that was right for the person she is making it for, she loved it and may order it for her husband!

This needlepoint design will be customized to order.  We can change the color, dog breed, and monogram.  To see pricing click the following link for the custom preppy dog gingham needlepoint belt canvas.  And contact us directly for finished custom belt pricing.

All About Photo Needlepoint Kits Dogs N Cat

If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know how much we love our pets!

NeedlePaint probably has the best looking custom needlepoint kits for working needlepoint from photo.

Have a look at our workshop table last Friday (see below) these are some fun projects!

Our kits come with either Waverly wool or DMC floss, hand made and matched to your pet.  Or if you prefer matching your own colors or working in a different fiber, our needlepoint canvases still come with a counted stitch guide and color chart matched to one of the two fiber options.  I suggest using the DMC color palate if you are buying your own fiber, as there are many free color conversion charts available online.

If you would like to see needlepoint dog breeds, we have some favorites on the website.  Or, if you prefer to stitch your own pet, you can needlepoint a photo using our online designer.  You can customize the design size, mesh count, number of colors and fiber type with the click of a button!  There is no fee to try out needlepoint designer so why not give it a try!

***If you are looking to stitch a graphic illustration, poem, or name, please contact us, our website is optimized for photos, but we can manually adjust your design so it comes out looking sharp.
