The term ‘stumpwork’ refers to three-dimensional or raised embroidery.  Technically this is a misnomer; the technique is more accurately called ‘raised embroidery’ - historically stumpwork means a very particular technique of using tiny pieces of wood to create the nose on an embroidered person!

Raised embroidery typically has elements of padding, wired 3D shapes and needlelace.

This design fits a 6 " (15 cm) ring frame.  It is ideal for beginners, giving you an introduction to lots of different stumpwork elements.

You get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results, delivered in pdf format by email.

You will also need:  contrasting printed cotton fabrics, stranded cotton embroidery thread, perle cotton thread, wire, needles.
