Design and stitch your own family portraits
The DIY Stitch People Book has hundreds of different pattern elements to help you get the perfect look for your family and friends!
This is one of the BEST purchases I have made! I love crosstitch, but never designed my own. This book took me out of my comfort zone and showed me I could do it! The instructions are clear and easy to understand and you'll be so happy with the results! I 100% recommend!!
I don't have this book yet, but I would love to buy one in the near future, I would love to make a cross stitch ornament for my son , in living memory, he was in the army . He passed away back in January 27 2015. I always wanted to make the army guy to represent son, my sunshine 🌞. I went to the public library trying to get the regular stitch people books but they don't have them .
Lizzy es incredible explica muy bien y te da ideas muy buenas. Me gustaria que hiciera los libros en español 🙏🙌 para una mejor comprencion gracias.
This book feels like a love letter to embroidery and to the reader. Theresa drew on her knowledge and experience, and compiled a masterclass in book form. Beginners can use this book to learn where to start, and experienced artists can use this book to level up their skills.
The attention to detail is unmatched. The advice is honest and heartfelt. The photography is incredible. The options for customization are limitless.
I am forever grateful for the joy this book has brought me (and my loved ones), and what it has helped me accomplish.
I love being able to use this to make personalised gifts for friends and family. It has so many useful tips, I don't know where I'd be without it!
I am 69 and heading for a depressing winter. I really think this will hit JUST what I need!!!
This set of holiday patterns is absolutely incredible! The variety and details in each of the scenes and configurations is amazing. What a perfect compliment to the Stitch People pattern collection. LOVE IT!
This book is absolutely incredible. The instructions are so clear and so thorough that you could make a portrait even if you’ve never picked up a needle before. The design of the book makes it easy to sort through and keep track of all your pattern choices, and the patterns themselves look great. This book is a great investment because I know I will be making Stitch People portraits for friends and family for years to come!
These will make putting together stitch people portraits a breeze. They will provide perspective and size of actual stitched project without the constant erasures on my graph paper. Thanks!
So I had to stitch my babe in his uniform and I’m so happy I got this book. There are so many different options for each service of the military. Even PTs LOL. it’s great!
I had to have this. I have the 1st edition too but I just had too. They have some of the animals at a different proportion to people. I grew up on a farm and county stuff is our jam. I recently made a portrait with chickens, pigs and sunflowers. So so pretty!
This is amazing addition to have a variety of different types of jobs and hobbies and I was very excited to stitch my kids in their scouts uniforms! I also did one of their hair guru (lol) and have plans for more!
Okay so I thought “isn’t there already wedding stuff in the diy book?” And yes there is. But this book goes into further detail and about more ideas, patterns, examples. Etc. it has helped so much! Not just with bouquets, but wedding parties and cakes and decor and banners and candles and all the event type things!
The price is something I see commented a lot. And I get it. But squeezing it into my budget was the best thing I did. It’s so so good. It not only gives you the tools and confidence, as well as the patterns to create your (or someone else’s) family but helps you with your skills to build on it! I have this book on both physical and digital and utilize them both. All. The. Time.
This book is a treasure! It has so many new ideas and helps in order to make your portraits so unique! Ideas for rooms in a house, kitchen utensils, t-shirt designs, all can be found in this one book. I love how it has helped my imagination on what can be done in portraits soar. Thank you for this book!
