Stumpwork silhouette portrait

Made for a friend’s youngster after he first started wearing glasses and was feeling a bit self-conscious about it.

Stumpwork embroidery makes some fun 3-D elements possible.

Lions have become a bit of a theme in things I craft for our friend so the back is covered in some of my very favourite vintage fabric.


I absolutely LOVE this! It is so perfect. The glasses are the best.

Love how you used the stumpwork!

Nice of you to nip that self-consciousness in the bud by showing that glasses look quite good!

How sweet of you, and nice work!

(I want a hoop where those lions are on the front, too!!!)

Such a kind, heartwarming project. I love it.

…I also love this fabric!! It looks like 70s barkcloth?
