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 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!
I bought this book to kick off my stitch people journey and I am in love! The book has so many tips and great ideas. It’s well organized and I love all of the pictures. Joining the stitch people community has been a joy and I can’t wait to see more from Lizzy in the future!
Just got my book,cant wait to create!
I was excited for this since we lived in Alaska for a short time so many of the animals I wanted are in this book. Plus extras like baby animals and different poses. Great addition to the set of books I have.
I am so glad I purchased, It was a lot of money for me but I have been able to really up my cross stitch skills!
Very beautifully designed. Wish there were more animals. Well worth the money.
These patterns are extremely beautiful!
I’ve been using these patterns to create “masked” Santas, Reindeers, Nutcrackers and Snowmen ornaments to gift to loved ones this year. I used the mask pattern from the Hero freebie to create the mask and just replaced a few stitches with a blue thread on the faces of each pattern. They’ve turned out so cute and we’re so quick for me to put together. If I could upload photos here, I would! Thank you for such a fun, imaginative product!
