Too Cute Tuesday – Baby portrait by Lady Jane Longstitches

Jessica Pambianco’s (a.k.a. Lady Jane Longstitches) portraits in thread have a huge Instagram following for good reason. Her ability to “paint” with thread, to capture expressions, textures and moments, is luminous.

Hand embroidery by Lady Jane Longstitches.

This recent commission piece of a blue-eyed baby in a sea of stuffed animals is a perfect example of her abilities. Notice how the child’s skin glows with life against the background of inanimate, colorful toys. That’s an artist with incredible skills!
