Custom, Handmade Cross-stitch People & Families

Gorgeous, custom, handmade art.

It's hard to give a personalised, unique gift now-a-days, isn't it? You want to do something special for that awesome person in your life but just buying any old thing won't cut it yet again.

Why not get them something personalised and extra special? Something that they can literally hand down to their children as a keepsake or family heirloom? Something that the more you look at it, the more you can spot?

A stitch people portrait is just that thing. Let me make you a piece that they will never forget. A gift that they will be raving about to their family and friends.

When can I give a portrait as a gift?

Well, I think that any occasion is a great excuse to give the gift of love and thoughtfulness -which encapsulates a stitched portrait to a tee!- but there are definitely some perfect moments in ones life that can be celebrated with one of these handmade pieces.

Gift ideas could be a milestone birthday, Christmas gift, 1st- or 2nd-anniversary present ('cotton' theme in UK or US respectively), commemorating a holiday, a new pet in the family, a pregnancy announcement, a housewarming gift, or, you know, just because. Who doesn't love a "just because" present?

Different types of pieces


Group Portraits

This is my most popular type of stitch people portrait to complete because it is the most versitile to stitch up. A family portrait? ✅ A group of friends? ✅ Grandparents and grandkids? ✅ The family menagerie of pets? ✅ You favourite group or band of people? ✅ It really can be anything you could think of, and for any gifting reason.

Wedding Portraits

A specific subset of a group portrait and yet, such a important one. This can include a wedding gift, engagement present or -and most commonly- a 2nd anniversary gift (which is known as the "cotton" gift to give).

This type comes as a minimum of 2 people with florals, but it can easily be expanded upon as you'll see from my previous work.

Single Character Portraits

The forgotten type; a single character. It can be such a beautiful, meaningful gift to give so don't disregard it.

A memorial of a beloved family member or pet, paying homage to a notible figure or inspirational celebrity or as simple as a baby announcement or graduation celebration. There's so many different occasions to note that only need a single character.

Holiday Ornaments

A small family keepsake -which is an excellent annual treasure to have made- depicting your growing and ever changing family unit.

It can include your immediate family, pets, a grandparent's grandchildren, a special building (IE: "Or first home!") or a baby's first Christmas, just as a few examples.
