custom belt design

Among the many services Needle Nicely offers its customers is canvases designed by our in-house designers.  We also offer a stitching service for those who like the look of needlepoint but don't have the time or skill to do their own needlepoint.  The following photographs show a belt we designed and are stitching for a customer.  His son grew up in Vero Beach, on the beach (Riomar is one area), swimming, snorkeling, and shelling. 

This is the right end of the stitched belt.  We usually put the monogram on the right end so it shows and isn't covered by the belt tongue.  Also, putting it in the middle may cause it to be covered by the pant belt loops--there is usually one in the middle of the back of pants.

Turtles nest on our beaches during the spring--lighting in the beach areas is restricted to allow turtles to go toward the sea, not toward lighted houses, when they hatch.  Seeing the turtles hatch and head for the ocean is a memorable experience. 

Just a note--a snorkeler shouldn't meet a lobster so large.  We had to make it that size to be able to stitch it recognizably as a lobster.  Artistic license!
