My newest embroidery portrait is now available as a DIY kit! 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. If you purchase the accompanying class through MyBluprint.com you will get plenty of video instruction for all of the embroidery elements in this design.
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.

To complete this pattern you may also need: - Scissors - a non-permanent fabric marker (such as water soluble) - A bright window or light board for pattern tracing (more info here) - You may want to invest in a high quality embroidery hoop if you have trouble maintaining tension with the included 9 inch hoop.
