Send me your favourite photos of your pet, and I will turn them into an embroidered work of art for you. You’ll be involved throughout, from selecting the perfect photo to choosing from an extensive collection of background fabrics, including plain denims, Liberty prints, and vintage furnishing fabrics. We collaborate to capture your pet’s unique character. The finished square portrait will take pride of place on your mantlepiece or grace your wall in a beautiful frame, becoming a cherished family treasure.

Whether it's a gift for a fellow pet lover, a special birthday, Christmas or wedding present, or a touching tribute to a departed companion, these embroidered portraits are a timeless way to celebrate the love and memories we share with our furry friends.

Need to know

The large portrait measures c. 30x30cm. It will come stretched onto archival grade mountboard, and I send them out unframed. Most people end up framing the portraits behind glass, and there will be a number of standard frame options. I am happy to talk you through your options when the portrait is ready, but do not offer a framing service.
We’ll also talk through the options for the background material once the embroidery is finished; I have lots and lots to choose from. It might be possible to back it on to a fabric you already own, one that has sentimental value, perhaps, but do bear in mind that this might take longer than the four weeks timeframe.

After you have placed your order, please use the Customer Contact Form on the Contact Us page and select ‘I need to send images to the Co for a personalised product’ option. You’ll then be able to attach your images. You’ll also be reminded on how to send these within your Order Confirmation email too. If you could please send these within 24 hours of purchase so your delivery time isn’t impacted.

Step into a world where threads come alive, capturing the essence of your furry friends.

Working from your cherished photographs, I’ll embroider a characterful and lifelike portrait of your beloved pet: whether a dog, or a cat, horse, or even an aardvark (yes, I have done an aardvark!) My work is a mixture of hand and machine embroidery, meticulously building up layers of fabrics, threads, and countless stitches, to create a vibrant portrait, and a unique piece of art.
