Friday Favorites – Custom Belt Needlepoint Canvases – Marilyn Monroe – Dogs

I know it is no longer Friday, but these images were taken then, and I’m just trying to keep up with the holiday orders.

I’m excited we sold our first Marilyn Monroe needlepoint canvas from New York Needleworks.  It came out very well!

Of course I had to share an image of our custom needlepoint belt canvases, every week brings new challenges and creative new concepts that will end up on a lucky person’s waist.

And last but certainly not least, we have a spread of custom dog needlepoint canvases from photos and one from artist Fowler Ruffin.  Holiday season is here, and keep in mind you have until Dec. 10th to guarantee arrival before Christmas without any domestic shipping surcharge.  (Dec. 17th is the hard cutoff).

Custom Needlepoint Belt Stitched!

I love to design the custom needlepoint belt canvases, but they look so much better when they have been finished!

Big thanks to Jenny in Connecticut for sharing her fabulous stitching, and her input in creating this design.

Also, I want to mention one of our recommended needlepoint belt finishers, Kathy at Leatherprize who took Jenny’s work and put it onto the belt.

If you’ve got an idea for a needlepoint belt canvas, please contact us, we’d love to help!

New Needlepoint Belt Designs and Christmas Reminder

Custom Needlepoint Belts have been a hot idea for Christmas!

We’ve got lots of new needlepoint belt canvas ideas, so when you’re ready to stitch the belt of your dreams, just let us know what you want, and we’ll create it for you.  Orders placed by Dec. 11th are guaranteed to arrive before Christmas, and orders placed by Dec. 17th can be 2nd day aired for an extra fee to arrive in time, too!

If you are looking for a finished belt, you have until Nov. 21st to email us your design.  We will be away from the office this week, so you will not get an invoice from us until Nov. 19, but don’t fear, we’ll make sure your belt is designed and stitched before Christmas.  Please send us an email or leave a message on our voicemail and we’ll be sure your order is processed in time.  Click here to contact us.

Anyway, back to the needlepoint belts.  The images below feature the canvases we made this week.  Some really fun needlepoint canvases, I can’t wait to see the belts!

Needlepoint Dog Collars – New Designs!

We’ve blogged about needlepointing dog collars in the past, but have finally created a needlepoint dog collar section in our shop!

I’m putting the new needlepoint designs in this post, as they are different from any I’ve seen and pretty cool if you ask me.

All these designs can be personalized and your dogs name and your phone number added to the canvas so you can stitch it in.  This gets rid of having to listen the the metal tags jingle on your dogs collar!

Also, if you want to take a belt design and make it into a collar, just let us know, we’d be happy to help.

You’ll see a project for our dog that will be finished soon and I’m sure I’ll be post pictures of the finished collar so you get an idea of how good they look.

Friday Favorites – Family Needlepoint Belts

Here are four needlepoint belt canvases that we made last week!

The one with the monograms and years represent the whole family on a belt, I kind of like that idea.  I may have to design a version for the website…

The others are a custom needlepoint life treasures belt, a colorado belt, and a single monogram belt.
