Starry Night Stumpwork Pin
Starry Night Stumpwork Pin

Designed by Kathleen Grigg of The Sewing Bird
Design size: about 2 inches by 2 inches

If you've never tried stumpwork, this is a good project to begin. It's probably more 'free-form' than you're used to, but that's okay, just let your needle be your guide and enjoy the freedom of creativity.

The true beauty of this piece, however, is the simple feeling of serenity that the snowfall scene evokes. It's a peaceful winter moment captured in threads. The subtle iridescence of the metallic braid creates the soft snow against the rich colors of silk threads for the tree and evening sky. Enjoy the project, and happy holidays.

Materials needed:

  • Kreinik Silk Mori in 8086 Dark Gray, 2013 Light Gold, 4067 Very Dark Holly, 7136 Dark Mocha

  • Kreinik Fine (#8) Braid 100 White

  • piece of muslin fabric

  • Dritz cover button kit (button size should be about 2 " x 2")

  • large pin back

  • #28 Tapestry needle or a crewel needle (which has a sharper point)

  • embroidery hoop or frame to hold the fabric taut while you stitch
