Those of you who are looking for help creating the perfect needlepoint belt for that special someone in your life should see the latest designs from last week!

You’ll see a custom college campus, lots of life treasures, a personalized nautical flag, and a custom duck hunting belt.

Some of the designs came out so well that I had to feature them in close up images.  I love the water skier and the 1956 Mercedes.

Please keep in mind that we sell fully stitched needlepoint belts AND for those who want to do the needlepoint themselves, we design and make needlepoint canvases for belts.

If you follow the blog, you’ll know that we get good feedback, but this blog post is specific to our needlepoint belts.

Last week we send out some more belts and our customers were delighted.  Here are two testimonial reviews that we got, makes a stitcher feel good!

“We received it and LOVE it!!!!  I want to order another one for my father in law.  His birthday is in mid-July but I suspect it may take longer, which is fine (we can just show him a picture and he can wait!).  I’ll order another now 🙂  Thanks for all your hard work!”  Rachel 5-21-2014

“Just have my husband his belt and he loves it! It turned out so well and it fits perfectly!!! My two sons are so jealous so I will definitely be placing orders for each of them in the near future:) …  Thank you again for making my vision a reality and for creating such a wonderful momento for my hubby!”  Kathryn 5-20-2014

Well, that sums up the whole design process to happy customer.  I always love to put pictures in our posts, so below is a photos we took a while back, but you can see newer belts by going through our blog.

Black Lab Needlepoint Belt – Springer Spaniel – Beagle

Three new needlepoint belts that are sure to inspire dog lovers.

We’ve done a lot of custom needlepoint belt designs with dogs on them, and realized that our dogs make great stand alone belts.

Labs have so much personality, and so do their owners! Our distinguished black lab needlepoint belt shows the dog at attention and spices up the wardrobe with an azure blue background.

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)
