Today, for the 100th post, I wanted to share with you Stitch People. Once upon a time, my friend Lizzy started this amazing company where she creates custom cross-stitch family portraits.
Each family portrait is completely customized to your family. Here are some of the portraits she's done:
She also does wedding portraits and pet portraits. Something else she offers on her website (and this is what I think you guys will especially like, since you're crafty) is a Do-It-Yourself Stitch People Book.
The description on her website for the DIY Stitch People Book is this:
Order the Stitch People DIY "bible" filled with over 500,000 cross-stitch pattern combinations! Includes designs and patterns for hairstyles, clothing, and dogs and cats of many breeds, as well as color suggestions, illustrations and examples to help make your cross-stitch family portrait look just right!
The physical book is 8.5"W x 11"H, and spiral bound for easy use. The E-Book and physical book are identical."
This book is awesome. Just check out a couple of the pages inside that help you stitch your own family portrait:
