Embroidery art makes us happy

It never ceases to amaze us when we see new ways of using stitching in design - and one of our favourite hobbies here on team TMS is looking out for handcrafted images in adverts, design and shopfronts. So we were chuffed to discover the beautiful home-sewn artwork of MaricorMaricar - spotted while browsing Computer Arts' inspiration gallery this week...Hungry Colours

We love how they've used simple chain stitching in variegated threads, to create swirly typograhy in this Land of Nod design.

And look! not content with using stitching in their design work, they even have fun with paper too (Food is Fun paper illustration - for Anorak Magazine).
