Welcome to my shop "Pet Lovers' Embroidery Portraits".

I truly love animals of all kinds and so enjoy stitching out these beautiful designs. Each time I stitch one out I am always so amazed at how realistic they appear some more so than others. The attention to detail in the coat and eyes seems to invoke the spirit of each animal, whichever it may be.

Each portrait is embroidered on a high quality upholstery weight ultra suede fabric, of which I have an array of colors.

The Portraits shown for sale in my shop, which have already been produced, show either as:
1 just the piece of fabric with an embroidery portrait or
2. the embroidered portrait blocked, stretched and laced, ready to be framed or
3. the embroidered portrait fully framed.

Any of the designs that are shown in my shop can be ordered and produced in any of these 3 formats.

If you wish the portrait to be prepared for framing (stretched, blocked and laced on a foam board - which you can request a specific size), then you should add $30.00 to the purchase price. If you wish to have it framed on top of that then you should add $25.00 on top.

Some of the designs are digitized using what is called "Photo Stitch" (noted on applicable item pages), which means that they are produced using a photograph. These designs, depending on the photograph, can look even more realistic. The difference between this type of machine embroidery is that there are many more stitches involved and the density of the stitching is much greater. Usually there are also a lot more colors of thread used. Needless to say, the cost of producing one of these types of portraits is higher due to the cost of materials plus the additional time to stitch them out. The results are incredible though.

PREPARATION FOR FRAMING: - Larger Portraits

Embroidered portrait is blocked and stretched over a piece of 3mm lightweight foam baffle board, then it is laced on the backside (using industrial strength thread), both vertically and horizontally.

The portrait can be purchased at this stage if you prefer to place it in a frame of your own choice. It is also much cheaper to ship prior to framing.

FRAMING - Larger Portraits:

- After the embroidered portrait has been prepared for framing, an 11" x 14" double matting is chosen (color choice) that complements the portrait.
- The matting is placed face down on the glass and inserted in the frame (approximately 11" x 14"), with the portrait placed face down centering it on the matting.
- The backing board is then placed on top of the portrait and is secured by clips.
- The pressure of the backing board against the portrait and matting keeps everything in place.

PREPARATION FOR FRAMING - Small Portraits

Embroidered portrait is place onto a piece of poster board (approximately 5" x 7"), which has been sprayed with a light adhesive. It is centered and stretched, and then any excess fabric is trimmed away.

FRAMING - Small Portraits

- After portrait is prepared for framing, a single matting (approximately 5" x 7") is chosen (color choice and type of cutout) that complements the portrait.
- The matting is placed face down on the glass and inserted in the frame (usually a frame measuring approximately 5 3/8" x 7 1/2"), with the portrait placed face down centering it on the matting.
- The backing board is then placed on top of the portrait and is secured by clips.
- The pressure of the backing board against the portrait and matting keeps everything in place.
