Custom House Portrait Needlepoint Pillows

We recently needlepointed two house portrait  custom needlepoint pillows for a customer over the holiday season, and they look amazing!

They emailed us water colors of the two homes that they wanted us to stitch and we worked with them to recreate them in needlepoint.

Whether you want to needlepoint the pillows yourself, or have us make the pillows, we’d love to help!

You can email us, or try turning your own photos into needlepoint on our website www.NeedlePaint.com

Last week we had some great projects.  This one was from a customer who stitched one of our custom needlepoint canvases 2 years ago and “get(s) many compliments on it.”  (Nora – 2015-04-25)

This is an office building she is stiching and we helped touch up the facade.

Large House Needlepoint Kit from Photo

Last week we designed and made a needlepoint kit for a stitcher who’s son recently purchased a new home.

The size she wanted to stitch was 23 inches by 13 inches.  The tricky part was that she could not get the two doors of the house to show up in the same image.  She emailed me 4 images, and I took two of the angles that I thought would work, and stitched them together.

It came out looking muddy due to the colors and lighting of the day, so after reviewing it with her, we decided I would “touch up” the canvas to make it easier to stitch.  The touch up included removing the grill and trash cans, along with a lot more things she didn’t think were needed.  We even added a new sky above the house.  After sending her the touched up preview, she loved it!  She received the canvas and was thrilled, which is always nice to hear  🙂

Even if your needlepoint photo is not perfect, if you contact us, we can probably help!  Visit our website NeedlePaint.com to get our phone number and email address.
