This adorable flamingo holiday needlepoint ornament is a delightful addition to Christmas decor. Flamingo Holiday is a bright, fun design, and it is so much fun to stitch.
I call the flamingo Felicity. She sports a red Santa hat with fur trim, and a sparkling ornament dangles from her beak. The background is painted with waves in three shades of blue green, and a blue & white sky. This canvas is a quick stitch, and is an ideal piece for decorative stitching.
I followed Flamingo Holiday with Loralee Lizard, a companion for Felicity. Stitch them up both up for a flirty, fun holiday combo. Finish both canvases as ornaments or stand up decorative accents.
Flamingo Holiday (aka Felicity) will look great completed in tent stitch. If you enjoy decorative stitching, check out our available stitch guide. I really enjoy developing stitch guides. While stitching the canvas, I get to take the time to try out new stitches until I find just the right one for each area. The Felicity Flamingo stitch guide walks you through every stitch with clear stitching charts and easy to follow instructions. Stitch guide is available for purchase as a PDF download HERE.
This modern Christmas design is painted on 18 count mono canvas. Overall design measures approximately 4″w x 5 1/2″h, with a minimum of 1 3/4″ of blank canvas on all sides. I would be happy to create the same design on 14 count canvas, if you prefer. Keep in mind that the overall size will change a bit.
I paint every canvas with great care and focus. I stitch paint every canvas as well, to make stitching even easier for you. A stitch painted canvas means you get the accuracy of a counted design, without the counting. With a stitch painted canvas, all color changes are clear and distinct (no gradual shading from one color to another) and perfectly fit the weave of the canvas. Stitch painting takes a bit more time, but I think it’s worth it.
Your made-to-order canvas will be ready to ship as soon as possible, but please allow up to 4 weeks. I hand-paint each and every order myself, and I want to ensure enough time to provide you with excellent quality!
I’m happy to customize these designs if you prefer different colors, or create a new original canvas for you. Just send me a note!
