Over on Needlepoint Teacher, Susan Sturgeon Roberts’ blog, is a wonderful detailed post on how to stitch this elaborate Egyptian hairstyle.
Now stitching the Queen of the Nile may not be in your plans, but there are plenty of things to tale away from this post.
How about using her directional creation of braids to stitch some stick-straight hair? You can use her method for making braids to make a child’s pigtails or a single fat braid.
The goldwork techniques used to embellish the hairstyle show some easy ways this material can be incorporated into your needlepoint.
The headband could be stitched in a very different thread to be any kind of headband.
So much inspiration from such a little bit of stitching.
