Okay, I know I'm supposed to say "Holidays" instead of "Christmas", but this post is specifically about Custom Christmas Tree ornaments. Like this:
This was a custom piece I did for a customer whose father had long since passed. It's "framed" in the same hoop in which is was stitched, this one being 6" if I recall correctly.
Got a family relative or pet you'd like memorialized? Have an idea for an ornament that you just can't find anywhere? Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org and let's make it happen!
Or, if you just want some funny 3-inch designs, check out my Threezles and Celebrity Threezles. These are all framed in the 3-inch hoop in which it's stitched (based on 14-count Aida).
It's always fun to spend the holidays with:
Or you could go traditional with this one:
Or again, not traditional, with any of these:
I think you get it.
One of my favorite things about running CrassCross.com is the opportunity to work directly with my customers on pieces meaningful to them. Sure, they may have come for something already in my store to begin with. But some come back again, this time wanting something specifically for them. Something special that will, I like to think, maybe become a family heirloom.
That's why I do custom designs.
I've done dogs (both alive and since passed), family members (both alive and since passed), children, parents, birth and wedding announcements, risque selfies, sunsets, cars, and cats (both alive and since passed).
One of my favorites was for a regular customer, let's call her "Rachel" because her name is Rachel, who wanted a Christmas ornament featuring her departed father, a cop in uniform. She wanted to hang it on the tree every year so he would never miss the holiday. What a great idea, I thought.
We tried to fit the image in a 3" or 4" hoop, but the clarity wasn't good enough. Some pictures work, some don't. But at 6", Rachel got a nice fat ornament that will forever garnish their tree.
To close, I can do this for you, too. Just email me at email@example.com and let me know what you want. Please send a picture and specify desired cloth color and size to get the ball rolling. As with Rachel and her dad, I'll gladly work with you to make the best keepsake.
I look forward to hearing from you!
