In this blog post we will show you a stitch guide for all the needlepoint stitches used in this Elephants needlepoint canvas, designed by Rachel Lee. This beautiful piece was stitched by our dearest customer Joana Rego, and she decided to use many different stitches to create the feeling of texture and patterns.
Joana is an experienced needlepoint crafter, so these stitches vary in difficulty level, but we pair them along with diagrams, so you can easily recreate them, and master even the hardest ones!
