Stitched Up

So it appears that stitching is back in Vogue.. quite literally! We're in awe of the talented Inge Jacobsena photography student at Kingston University, who has recreated some Vogue covers using the art of cross stitch and we think you'll agree that the result is just stunning. 

"I start the covers by making holes with a needle; this prevents the paper getting too damaged when I start sewing it. This can take a few hours depending on the cover. Then it's a case of very carefully cross-stitching the whole thing," explains Jacobsen. 

We love how the covers are now made into unique pieces of art, with just the help of a little bit of thread. We've come over all crafty!
