Part 2 - Nose


Here is the second part of a tutorial for stumpwork portraits, inspired by Fay Maxwell, whose excellent book Ladies with Hatitude I warmly recommend.



NOSE

Place two pins where you want the nose and eyes.

Stitch the nose like this:


Continue down the nose.

Pull the thread until you have a nice ridge for the nose.

Make two stitches to shape the end (tip) of the nose.

Next up, Part 3 - Eyes, which will be a longer session.

    1. I think Fay Maxwell has simplified many traditional techniques and made them more fun. REAL traditional stumpwrok needs to be perfect and is indeed impressive.
      Here we are just having fun with simple techniques, and enjoying how successful they are!

    1. She was a quick job! Well, it proves that even with a small piece of felt you can make a hat!
