About PaintWithStitchesCom

Sales 279
On Etsy since 2021
Video summary: This is my latest endeavour! I needed a background to fit my lighthouse so I defaulted to my painting... and now I create watercolour designs on aida cloth to fit the patterns I want to do! It took a bit of experimenting to find a way to make them practically colourfast but it worked!

Painting with Stitches!!!

I always loved cross-stitching and have done a lot over the years but my passion has been into painting lately. With the pandemic, I found myself with more time on my hands (who didn't!!) and needed to get out of my painting studio so I played with converting my little puffin into a cross-stitch, got re-equipped with threads, needles and hoops and voila! I rediscovered how much I loved doing this!

One thing led to another and I found a bunch of ladies who, as a part of my focus group, helped me tweak my design skills and there we go! I am now converting a LOT of my paintings into cross stitch patterns and people are loving it!

If you have special requests, let me know!

Frequently asked questions
Are your paintings on fabric guaranteed to be colourfast?

Nope! I cannot guarantee anything as there are too many variant that could contradict this but, in my process, I have tested my method by washing in a very hot machine cycle was and dryer cycle (hot too!) and my paintings came out practically the same! The only different is that the edges were very frayed and the fabric, which is 100% cotton, had shrunk so a 14ct aida was now a 15ct one. I no longer do the full machine wash and dry cycles for those reason but each piece is washed and ironed multiple times before they are listed so I am pretty confident about my process.

The paints I use are professional quality, highly pigmented, watercolours. A fabric medium is used to seal the micro-pigment particles into the fabric.
