Embellish your favorite purse with a NeedlePaint Purse Strap

Carrying a purse starts from a very early age; we want to be just like Mom! The ability to bring our “treasures” along with us where ever we go, young or old, is a comfort and essential to our happiness.

The options are unlimited! Purses come in all sizes, shapes and colors, and now you can customize your favorite with a stylish needlepoint purse strap. NeedlePaint has designed purse strap canvases for you to stitch, along with a totally customizable canvas design option, for that special idea you may have in mind. We also offer fully finished purse straps if you would like for us to do the stitching.

Key fobs canvases are achievable! Sometime the size of a project can be a little daunting. A key fob canvas is adorably small, and is definitely a quick project to stitch. All skill levels will enjoy stitching these canvases. If you’re a beginner, they are the perfect project to learn on without becoming frustrated. In addition a key fob canvas is small enough to slip into a project bag and take with you anywhere.

A fun project needs to have great colors and good design! It’s always fun, if you are stitching a project with colors and a design that speaks to you. Each colored stitch makes your design come to life, and will keep your interest in the project. We would be happy to make a simple adjustment to a color or background color on your canvas . . . . don’t be afraid to ask. Also, if you have an idea for your own design, let us know, we would be happy to translate it onto a custom needlepoint key fob canvas for you.

Key fobs are the ultimate in usable needlepoint! Everyone has a set of keys! It’s fun to personalize these little accessories, with images that reflect your personal taste and style. They are also big enough to locate in your handbag or backpack, but not too cumbersome, as they will still fit into your pant pocket.

Key fobs are the perfect gift idea! If you have already stitched a key fob for yourself, consider stitching one for the other members of your family. They make great birthday gifts, graduation gifts, or Christmas gifts! If you have a large number of people on your holiday list, this is a great way to give something heart felt, handmade, and a gift of equal value for everyone on your list, and yet each with a different design.
