Taking Cross Stitch to New Places
I've been designing cross stitch patterns since my teens. The patterns that were in the crafts stores never appealed to my geeky nature. So, I made my own. My early work was designed by hand. Now with the aid of a computer, I can speed up the process and share my work with others.
Over the years, I got tired of making flat designs. There are only so many walls to hang things on, and pillows can get in the way. I have made many stuffed animals and realized that I could combine cross stitch with plush animals. I've been having great fun designing 3D cross stitch pieces. Most of my patterns still reflect my geekiness. I think they are a lot of fun and hope you like them too.

Frequently asked questions
Do you sell finished pieces?
How much is a finished piece?
Each of my pieces takes me upwards of 55 hours to make. To pay for my time and materials I would have to charge upwards of $650 per piece.
Etsy says my pattern has been shipped, but I can't find it.
I sent your pattern to the email account you have connected with your Etsy account. It will be coming from robin at lakeserv dot net and the subject line is the title of the pattern. If you don't see it in your inbox, check your junk folder. They get sorted there very often.
Why don't you have "digital download" as an option?
My files are too large for the digital downloads via Etsy. You will get the pattern within 24 hours via email.
Can you send a hard copy of the pattern?
I can for an additional fee to cover printing and shipping costs. Just email or message me if you would like a printed version mailed to you.
Do you have a video showing how to assemble the 3D cross stitch pieces?
Yes, I do. It is too large for me to post in my Etsy shop, but here is a link to it:
I warn you, it is slow, but it will give you an idea of how I do it.
Do you sell to EU countries?
Yes. There is no VAT due to the fact that I email the patterns.
