People love to wear their needlepoint! It is the biggest trend I’ve seen over the last 7 years, more and more needlepoint is being turned into products that can be used, especially amongst the younger generations.
The most eye popping project we’ve worked on recently are needlepoint slippers and needlepoint loafers. Check these out!
This project came to us from a customer in New Orleans. We designed two new custom needlepoint slipper canvases for him. (The link actually shows another project we did for a pair of womens needlepoint slippers, but pricing and template are the same)
As far as needlepointing a project like this goes, it is pretty simple. There are two needlepoint kits that come with thread, which you needlepoint the design area like most projects (in a tent stitch). Once you are done with the needlepoint, you send them off to be turned into slippers or loafers. Our customer recommended using: George Cleverly in London. Another finisher in the UK is Bowhill and Elliot.
Below you can see a needlepointed canvas before and fully finished needlepoint loafers after, enjoy!
