My apologies ... I do see the "hand painted" part. I zoomed way in and it still looks like needlepoint to me with all of the stitches slanting up to the right. Cross stitch typically has a stitch from lower left to upper right, crossed by a stitch from lower right to upper left and is not usually stitched on a canvas. It could be the type of yarn or the technique that makes it look a little different. They are cute!

stitches in cross-stitch could lay however you want to, the only rule is: they should be uniform. i mean, if you choose to lay upper stitch from upper left to lower right (as i do :)), they all should be done like that. also - i think in those pillows they used zweigart's aida (it's soft), not canvas (tough one).

From the description: "Each kit includes a hand-painted Zweigart CANVAS front."
sorry to say, the description does say it is hand-painted and it does look like cross-stitch to me!

I've never heard of cross-stitching on hand-painted canvas. I'd say it's needlepoint, too.
These are precious, but you would probably sell a lot more of them with an accurate description. They are not cross stitch pillows, they are needlepoint pillow kits. Are the canvases hand painted? These types of details are important!

it's cross-stitch, you can see that in the photos. painted canvas only replaces a chart - beginners' level.
