Ada was originally sketched to digitize and thread-paint, similarly to my other portraits. However, this time I printed the sketch directly on the water soluble sticker paper and stitched it exactly as sketched. Each line was made with long split stitches.
Her earring was made with glitter thread in a few rows of satin stitch. I couldn't decide between gold or multicolored thread, so I let the people decide on Instagram!
Ada will ship already completed in a stained hoop and felt backing. This is a single finished item made to order.
You can also purchase a Print n' Stitch pattern of Ada in the shop to make for yourself!
