Custom Cross-stitch - Single Character Portrait

This listing is for one custom, hand stitched cross-stitch finished piece. You'll receive a finished portrait of a single character, which is perfect as a gift for numerous occasions or just as a piece for yourself in your own home!
Gift ideas are graduation, pet commemoration, announcements, housewarming present, birthday gift, new milestone or, you know, just because :)

Helpful info:

  • An adult holding a baby (swaddled or in a carrier) only counts as one character
  • A toddler/child/teen is classified as one character
  • A pet (no matter what kind) is classified as one character. This includes things like horses, pigs, chickens, etc.


Embellishments are 'extra' things on top of your stitch piece that aren't people/pets or the 2 lines of text. Examples of the levels offered are:

  • Minor: A small, floral border around/above & below your piece, grass & flowers to stand on or a mascot/holiday icon (eg: Christmas tree).
  • Major: A large item alongside the characters such as a car, house objects (eg: set in a room), trees or many minor objects.
  • Extensive: A detailed background or many minor/major objects.

Every custom piece is hand stitched by myself to your specifications using beige 14ct (or 28ct depending on availability - will still be the same size) Aida cloth with DMC embroidery floss. Each piece is finished with a wooden embroidery hoop (and this can be changed to a frame for an additional charge).

A listing to receive a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind handmade cross-stitch person, character or pet. The perfect gift for a loved one or for yourself. Available for purchase through
