Super cute; I just wish that there was a Princess Vanellope to make an even 20!

The portrait I ordered of my boyfriend, bird and me is perfect. Great attention to detail, even on the smallest of subjects! My boyfriend loved this gift.

You asked, I added even more characters! The 2018 update of the Princess Pattern now includes the feisty Vanellope Von Schweetz. So sweet!

About

Handmade loveliness from the North East of England - home of the Pixel Portrait.

Scarlet Pyjamas stitches happy memories into unique family portraits.

Since 2009, Laura (the lady behind the canvas) has been creating custom pieces for friends and families across the globe. My signature products are the Pixel Portraits - cute little cross stitch pictures capturing friendships and families, weddings and new babies - all the joyful events in life, captured in 8-bit glory.

Pixel Portraits have been featured all over the web and in print - including, rather excitingly, features by Oh Joy! and Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine.

Most pieces are custom made to order, based on photographs of special moments and people. If you're a keen stitcher yourself, there are also a range of patterns to keep any crafter happy.

When I'm not stitching up a storm, you can find me flitting like a hummingbird between zillions of other crafts that catch my eye. Or on Pinterest. Yeah I'm probably on Pinterest...

Frequently asked questions

What do I need to send to make my Pixel Portrait?

All I need are:
• Photographs of the people / animals you'd like to include (they don't all have to be in the same shot, and I don't need full body images)

• Descriptions of the outfits you'd like them to wear and any objects you'd like me to include.

• Any wording you'd like stitching

How do I send my images?

Pictures can be sent to me either via email or using the Etsy messaging service. You can attach images by clicking on the Camera Icon or the 'Attach Image' option.

Etsy will allow you to send up to 3 images per message (multiple messages are absolutely fine!).

When will I receive my portrait?

I usually have a 2-4 week waiting list, depending on the season.

If you require a portrait for a particular date, please get in touch prior to ordering to ensure I'm able to get your portrait to you in time.

Can I have a portrait shipped elsewhere as a gift?

Yes! Just let me know the address of the recipient when ordering and I'll make sure your portrait is sent as a gift to their home.

I have an idea for a pattern, do you do custom designs?

Absolutely yes! If you've got an idea of a pattern you'd like designing, let's chat. Just send me an Etsy message and we'll get to work together.

Can I see my design before you begin stitching?

Yes, this is an important part of the process.

Every Pixel Portrait begins with a digital 'sketch'. At this stage, you'll have the opportunity to make changes until you're happy as a clam with your design.

At this point, I'll begin work on your finished piece.
