It is not everyday that we find true talent, but about a week a go I was contacted by a very talented artist who is interested in creating custom needlepoint belt designs for us.
I’m amazed by their ability to capture details on a belt that normally would not be possible using only 22 stitches. The custom college needlepoint belt design is just an example of what we can do. The preview below is of the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, Indiana, but you go ahead and tell us the campus you’d like on your belt along with buildings, stadiums, and landmarks and we’ll create a new design for you!
Keep in mind our designs can be ordered either as a needlepoint belt or you can order the needlepoint canvas and stitch it yourself!

Another example we created is the custom landscape scene needlepoint belt canvas. You may have seen a picture of this canvas in last week’s Friday Favorites blog post. This is just an idea, but how cool would a city scape of New York, Chicago, or Paris be!

We had a busy week, and made some great custom needlepoint kits!
It is hard not to love the super heroes in the first photo, this dog on the right just happened to have his bandana flapping in the wind…
The dog needlepoint canvases were just too cute this week, too! (second photo)
Alas, some more custom belts, they are so much fun to design, but I think this week’s we really had some fantastic ones. I love the decathlon idea for a track needlepoint belt, and the

We’ve done a few flies on custom needlepoint belts recently, but per request we finally created a dedicated fly fishing needlepoint belt design.
This design features a lot of color variations of clouser minnow flies and a fly rod.
Now, if you’ve got another fly(s) that you or a person (whom you’re kind enough to be stitching a belt for) happens to use different flies, just let us know and we’ll create a custom needlepoint design just for you!
Below the needlepoint belt preview you will see the fly fishing and bird hunting canvases we made last week, both came out really well!

It always brings a smile to may face when our customers send back pictures of the custom needlepoint belts that we helped design for them.
These belts all were made from needlepoint kits, that we sent out 1-3 months ago! And, these projects are so fun, that both of the customers are working on new designs for other family members!
Along with this subject, we’re always looking for a good belt finishers, so if you know one, please leave their information in the Comments on this post.
If you have any ideas for a belt, let us know!
