Embroidery Details

• All of my work is hand stitched on clean cotton twill fabric.

• Embroidered with DMC cotton floss

• Your embroidery will arrive stretched in its hoop with the back finished.

• Each embroidery design is handcrafted specifically from your provided personal photos!

• Everything is created in a smoke-free and pet-friendly environment!

 

After Ordering

After your purchase, I will need photos of your pet! 2-3 photos are best, but the more the better! Clear photos with good lighting are what I’m looking for. You can send photos to me through my email, order@stitchingsabbatical.com. Once I’ve received some photos, we can discuss all the wonderful ideas you have for your embroidery! I’ll get something sketched up for you and once we agree on a design I’ll get stitchin’!

 


From Me to You

When I’ve finished your embroidery and you’ve given me the ‘go ahead’ to ship it, it’s time to get it packaged up! Before shipping, your embroidery hoop will be lint rolled to remove as many cat hairs as possible. Embroideries are then placed in a brown bag and wrapped with a strand of hemp twine. Finally, items are tucked into bubble mailers and shipped through USPS with a provided tracking number.

*Additional care instructions: as I work, I use heat sensitive pens to sketch out my designs. All marks are ironed off before sending. In rare cases during shipment, the temperature can reach below freezing and the ink can re-appear! If you receive your embroidery and there are any pen-like marks on it, no fear! You can easily remove them! Simply use a hair dryer on a hot setting or gently pass over the embroidery with an iron. If you have any questions or concerns about this process please don’t hesitate to ask!
