Explore A Scuba Diving NeedlePaint Project!

NeedlePaint has been inspired by one of the fastest growing extreme sports in the world today — scuba diving! With our insatiable attraction to the undersea world, we have designed a selection of scuba themed canvases for you to explore. In addition, sharks remain the object of our fascination and fears, we think you will enjoy these canvases too.

Scuba Diving Flag Needlepoint Belt Canvas

This flag is easily recognized with its bold color and simplistic graphic design.
The scuba diving flag, or diver down flag, is flown from a dive boat
warning other surface watercraft that a diver is in the water.


Scuba Diving Needlepoint Key Fob Canvas

Similar to our Scuba Flag belt canvas, the diver down flag also looks great on a key fob canvas.
Feel free to personalize this canvas with your monogram or initials.


Mako Shark Needlepoint Key Fob Canvas

Mako Shark Needlepoint Key Fob Canvas

The Mako shark is viewed by the Maori people of New Zealand as a guardian spirit, and appropriately named Mako; the Maori word for shark. A fun key fob design featuring
a combination of the Mako shark and the scuba diving flag.


Personalized Scuba Diving Needlepoint Belt Canvas

A gallery of underwater adventure is depicted on this scuba diving needlepoint belt design. Images include: a Spotted Eagle Ray, the Scuba Flag, a Hawksbill Sea Turtle,
a Scuba Diver, and a Black Tip Reef Shark.

The streamlined proportion of this needlepoint belt is a perfect backdrop for the beautiful lines of the shark. On a background color of rich ocean blue, you will see a variety of sharks including: Hammerhead, Black Tip Reef, Great White, Mako and a Tiger Shark.


Great White Shark Needlepoint Dog Collar Canvas

Friday Favorites – Nantucket and Sailing Needlepoint Canvases – Nautical Belts – Kids Name Stitched

Happy Friday!  I’ve got a lot of pictures for you today!

First some nice feedback we got this week…

“Just a quick note of thanks for the needlepoint canvas, which my mother is busily working on! Really appreciate your help and patience in making this happen.  Thank you!  Betsy”  4-16-14

But even better we were emailed photos of a finished project that was custom painted for one of our customers!   I love all the different stitches she used!  Great work Judy!

On to my other favorite hobby (or job :-), custom needlepoint belts!  If you look closely at the second canvas from the left, you will see a fencing foil setup, and next to that is what I’m calling a liberty belt!  Fun colors and it has a liberty bell and the Grand Union flag from 1776.

There were so many great projects, but this week one took up almost half the workshop table!  This large custom needlepoint kit was made from a photo.  It is going to look amazing when finished.  I liked that they used a lot of colors so details came through.  But there was enough contrast that the colors are still pretty easy to follow on the canvas. (sorry the photo is a bit dark, but you’ll get the idea!)

If you are a fan of John James Audubon, then you may recognize these two designs!  Most of his art is in the common domain, so let us know if you have a project you’d like to stitch! (again sorry for the darker image)

Last but not least, we have a custom dog collar from our pink mountain design, and a church logo which will be stitched for the pastors office!

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.
