Photorealistic and cross stitchable

Orcraphics Cross Stitch was started in 2012 in the Netherlands. The brand came from my desire for realistic designs of killer whales. So I decided to try to make my own, my first try-out turned into the kit Black & White Beauty. I suprised myself with the ease with which I stitched and the beautiful photorealistic result. And it turned out it also worked for other designs that werent black and white killer whales. Soon I figured out, that if you stitch yourself and know what to watch out for, it is possible to make photorealistic designs that are not hard to stitch!

I was always annoyed by how many different kinds of stitches some kits use. So I decided to only use cross stitches with a back stitch here and there. No fuss with half stitches sometimes stitches with 1 thread, another 2, and sometimes even 3 threads eventually giving you 4 different icons in the pattern for the same colour stitched 4 different ways. I was also annoyed by the constant attaching and detaching your thread all the time. Alright, for an eye or specific highlight, that can happen, but not everywhere. So I knew I needed to group the stitches, prevent the constant attaching and detaching and making sure you can finish the piece of thread you are working on. And that became the base of all of my designs and our motto: realistic and simple (or stitchable). Clear and easy to read patterns, guarantee forms, and the best quality floss and fabric (DMC floss and Zweigart aida fabric in fun colours) complete the picture.

We have primarily wildlife and nature designs (and of course christmas, birth and wedding designs), but we are going to expand our range in the comming time. I am looking forward to doing more with pets and farms animals, but also fantasy designs (vampires, fairies, elves and unicorns and the like) and halloween seems a lot of fun too! We are always looking for new ideas, so contact if there is something you have been looking for or just have a good idea! If we create a design off your idea, you can buy the kit or pattern with a 50% discount and you dont pay for shipping!

So feel free to look around in our shop, on the left you can choose to see the products per category!

Welcome at Orcraphics Cross Stitch. We are a new cross stitch brand from the Netherlands, available sinds 2012. We specialize in realistic cross stitch designs that are still simple to stitch. Our motto is realistic, yet simple. In other words, stitchable. It stays stitchable due to the relatively low amount of colour floss we use (DMC), clear and easy to read patterns, grouped stitches so no need to attach and detach so often, and everything is made to 5,5x/cm; 14 count aida. We have many wildlife and natural designs, but we also have Christmas designs and designs for births and weddings in our collection. So feel free to have a look in our shop. If you are looking for something special, please dont hesitate to contact us.

Additional policies and FAQs

OUR GUARANTEE: Each kit contains a guarantee with a number. If you provide this number to us (either by contacting us through Etsy or email or by filling out our guarantee form on our website) you can request extra floss or replacement parts free of charge. You should have more than enough floss in the kit, but if you go wrong you may need more. We consider mistakes like this 'normal usage' and is thus covered by our guarantee. All we ask is that you are honest about the reason so we don't unnecessarily increase the amounts in the kits.

WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY OUR GUARANTEE
-Making the design twice. If you want to make it again, you'll need to buy it again.
-Making the design on a different count fabric. The amounts are based on 14ct fabric. If you decide to use your own, you wont have enough if the count is lower than 14. Higher than 14 and you'll have more left over. If you really want to use another fabric, we can send you a kit without fabric, and if the fabric is larger, adjust the amounts of floss included (a custom order).
-Using the parking method while stitching. This means you keep dragging floss up throughout the design. This takes way more floss than intended. You can easily carry over the floss 5-10 stitches where desired or necessary, that is absolutely no problem. We do that ourselves all the time.
-If we think you may be trying to scam us, we can refuse to provide you any floss for free.
-We will supply a maximum of 15% of total floss (all colors combined) for free. Above that we will charge you just above cost and shipping costs.

In each of these cases we can supply you with extra floss, however, we will charge you for the floss and the shipping.

We DON'T provide the DMC numbers at any time. Wild boar. We have been deceived by someone claiming to be a 92 year old. We simply won't do it anymore, no matter the situation.
