Hand painted canvases

Hand painted canvases lets you choose your own colour scheme at no extra cost.

Collins Street

Collins Street is my latest hand painted design. It is my tribute to Melbourne, always a centre of fashion and design innovation.
It is a large cushion 45 x 43 cm.
The design features three colours, blue, white and a feature colour with tonal highlights. Below are some alternative colour ways.

Camellia sleep mask

The Camellia sleep mask was a project commissioned by Homespun magazine.

It is a beautiful small project, is quick to stitch and perfect to take on your travels either as a kit or the finished mask.



The HaNoi Flower cushion is the latest studio stitches design. Available in turquoise blue and gold.

The yellow version.The HaNoi Flower cushion is inspired by the colourful tin ware of VietNam.

Remember because this is a hand painted design you can choose your own colour scheme at not extra cost.

Why hand painting?

Hand painted canvases are an exciting new addition to the studio stitches range of kits.

Unlike digital printing, which requires large print runs to make it economical, hand painting allows me to produce just a few of the same design at a time, which allows me to experiment with more designs and colours for you.

Another benefit of hand painting is that I can be more responsive to customers needs. If you want a particular colour scheme I am able to personalise the design to suit you at no extra cost.

Loving the process

I really enjoy the process of hand painting and it means every customer is buying a “one off” so no two will be exactly same. That makes your needlepoint just that little bit more special.

My hand painted canvases are sold as kits with

  • Plenty of DMC 100% wool
  • Needles
  • Step by step instructions
  • studio stitches cloth label
  • A wonderfully practical zip bag to store your project as you stitch.

So all you need to do is unpack your kit and start stitching!
