My newest embroidery portrait is now available as a downloadable pattern! Her crown is created using surface embroidery techniques and stumpwork, to give a totally unique, three dimensional look. The included instructions include basic directions for completing the stumpwork elements but you may benefit from additional instruction if you are new to the technique.
The surface embroidery stitches used in this design are easy, but putting them together in this way makes them a bit more difficult. The hardest part may be transferring the pattern to fabric and maintaining the shape of the face while stitching.
The directions (two files) will be available to you for download after your purchase.
The embroidery pattern includes: - Written instructions and suggested stitch order - Stitch and color keys - Shopping list with suggested DMC embroidery floss colors - Full color close up photo of stitched pattern - Stumpwork placement diagram - PDF design sized for a 9 inch hoop, ready to print (shrink or enlarge to meet your needs)
The beginner guide includes: - A supplies list with suggested products (hoops, needles, fabric, etc) based off of my experience - Helpful tips and tricks for transferring design, getting started, and finishing your project - Diagrams of stitches
This document is also available on my website HERE and includes videos for most stitches.
