Custom Hand Embroidered Pet Portraits Using Thread Painting Techniques

NOTE: Our Hand Embroidered Art has taken off and demanded its own shop so please find these wonderful items at Harrison Custom Gifts, also on Etsy and their blog can be found HERE.

I am still doing hand embroidered wedding items but also enjoy doing custom hand embroidered pet portraits. Our pets are so much a part of our lives and I so enjoy making a special image of them for you to treasure through the years. It takes many hours of work to make these pet portraits, one thread at a time, all made completely by hand.I use a technique known as "thread painting" which uses one thread at a time to layer on the colors of the embroidery floss to create a beautiful portrait. I am happy to combine multiple pets on one hoop if you like. I would suggest the larger hoop for more than one pet.

I use 4", 5" or 6" bamboo embroidery hoops with the finest DMC cotton floss to make these images. I will need at least one detailed photo with good light of your pet. The more detailed the photo, the more detailed I can make your portrait.

I would love to know any details you want to share about your pet to help me understand his/her personality. Please share the name you would like added to the portrait or any custom details you would like to have included. Please contact me with these custom details prior to purchasing the listing. If you have a pet that has gone on before you to Heaven, I can make you a portrait from your photographs to memorialize your sweet pet.

Thank you for visiting 4girlsdesigns blog today. Please take a moment to visit the shop on Etsy today!
