I started this project ages ago, inspired by this beautiful blackwork by Cresus Parpi. I’m thrilled to finally have it done, framed, and hanging in our entryway.
Each stripe has a different blackwork design.
The shoe is done with a thick random hash of stitches to give it weight.
I’m really happy with this and scheming more blackwork projects if I ever catch up with my backlog of halfdone crafts.
Perhaps the best thing about this project is that I designed it to fit a $4 vintage frame, so it was ready to hang the same day I finished it.
