Stitch People Weddings
Did you know that one of the very first Stitch People portraits ever given was a gift for a wedding? Cross-stitching, being a centuries-old pastime, lends itself well to creating heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation. What better piece to pass along than a piece celebrating the union of two people from which the generations will grow!
Intended as a companion to “Do-It-Yourself Stitch People,” the 78-page Stitch People “Weddings” book provides patterns and techniques for you to integrate into your Stitch People portraits that are specifically geared towards marriage proposals, engagement announcements, weddings, and anniversaries.

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!
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!
Love this weddings book! It gives you tons and tons of outfit ideas as well as adding in key background items. I’ve used this to help make a pattern for other things besides weddings. Definitely a must have!
