I am very excited to announce that I have finished stitching several of my canvases and will be releasing stitch guides for them very soon! Here are some images of the way I stitched these beauties.

I originally designed this canvas to be a birth announcement or wedding pillow, but with all of the solid background space, I decided to customize it with a favorite mantra of mine.  I am going to hang it in my studio to give me some feminist inspiration.

The lovely Frances Jue of Stitches in Time in Houston, TX took my canvas and finished it into a beautiful clutch. I love the way the beads and matte sparkles from Sundance Designs really make the orange star pop!

I love, love, love the way my Orale canvas turned out and I am super excited to have it made into a pillow for my sofa. “Orale” is a Mexican/Chicano word that means “let’s go!” or “right on!” and I use it a lot, especially with my amazing, energetic daughters.

The stitch guides should be available in the next month or two; I will announce it on my site when they are ready to purchase. To inquire about availability or pricing, please contact your local needlepoint store or send me an email at LittleBirdDesignsLLC@gmail.com.

Happy stitching! -Michelle
