Custom designed and completely hand-stitched, your portrait will be one-of-a-kind. A great way to celebrate and or commemorate any number of special occasions, such as a special holiday, significant birthday, graduation, anniversary, birth etc. Did you know that the traditional gift for a second anniversary is COTTON? What a unique gift, since your portrait will be stitched on cotton aida cloth with cotton thread.
How does it work?
After you place your order, I'll be in touch via email (usually within 24 hours) to request details for your portrait, including the text you'd like included at the bottom of the portrait. The best way to get a good likeness is to send pictures, so be sure you have a picture or two of each character in the portrait that you can send me. Once those details are received, I'll design and hand-stitch your portrait, and it'll be sent out via the shipping method you chose during checkout.
Since the portraits are stitched by hand, they usually ship within about 3 weeks of being ordered. Please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery (or more if you're ordering from outside the US).
Contact me with any questions you may have.
Your Stitch People Portrait will come ready to frame. The edges will be professionally finished with a serge stitch to prevent unraveling of the aida cloth fibers and the back will be fused using professional fusing cloth keeping all the threads secure.
In short, it will be ready for you to finish in whatever way you like. Take it to your local framer, sew it into a pillow or a quilt, place it an embroidery hoop and finish the back for hanging (tutorial available on my blog).
If you would like me to take care of finishing the portrait for you in any of the above methods, I can do so for an additional charge. Price is determined by the method you choose. Contact me to discuss specifics and pricing.
