Discover how to create realistic portraits that capture the essence and spirit of an animal through creative hand embroidery
When it comes to creating realistic artwork, thread painting is an essential technique. For portraying animals, in particular, it’s even more useful thanks to its ability to replicate fur. Hand-embroidery artist Michelle Staub specializes in creating custom pet portraits using creative stitching techniques. She shares her work with over 180K followers on Instagram and has published a book on the subject.

In this online course, she teaches you how to hand embroider a realistic pet portrait of your own using the thread painting technique. Create handmade tributes that celebrate the connection between humans and their pets using your own two hands.

Begin the course by getting to know hand-embroidery artist Michelle Staub. Discover the creative journey that led her to create embroidered pet portraits professionally, along with the influences that inspire her.

Dive into the materials needed for the course before learning basic embroidery stitches and how to thread paint. Choose a reference photo for your project and see how to turn it into a pattern. Transfer your pattern onto fabric, then choose the perfect colors for your embroidery.

Michelle talks you through her process for embroidering portraits. Then it’s time to make a start on yours with your initial stitches. Move on to the neck of your pet, stitching outside the lines to create realistic-looking fur, and using topstitching to blend colors.

Embroider the ears and eyes of your animal, before moving on to the nose, chin, and cheeks. Finish the face by embroidering the sides and forehead. Then put the final touches to your portrait - whiskers and background elements.

Learn how to clean up your stitches and back your hoop. To wrap up the course, Michelle shares her tips for taking care of your embroidery, from adding stitches, to keeping it out of direct sunlight.

What is this course's project?
Create a thread-painted, hand-embroidered animal portrait. Michelle uses a cat as her subject, but you can use any animal of your choice.
