***VERY IMPORTANT: Please be sure you have read our Measuring Guidelines, BEFORE completing your Needlepoint Finishing Form.  All customers are responsible for providing us with a correct measurement for any needlepoint finishing.***

General Information 

  1. You should have a binding stitch or stitch 2 extra rows (for a fold finish) on the top and bottom of the belt or key fob for turning. 
  2. Leave at least 2” of plain stitched needlepoint background on each end of your work so that no meaningful pattern will be covered (1” for key fobs).
  3. For belts with leather on each end, the stitched portion of your canvas should be 4” shorter than the belt measurement. For example, for a 36” finished belt size, stitch 32" of canvas in total.  This measurement includes the 2" on each end that will be covered by leather.
  4. The best way to measure the belt size is from the tip of the buckle to the most used hole in a belt that is currently being worn. This measurement is the size that we will make your needlepoint belt to the center hole of the 5 adjustment holes.  Unless you bring/send a sizing belt in, all corrections will be the responsibility of the customer so please measure carefully. 
  5. Blocking is recommended but not required.
