Description

I’ve been very interested in getting in touch with my creative and feminine side by the means of sewing, knitting and embroidery. I found out that embroidery, at least in the case of cross-stitching, is exceptionally easy and relaxing.

Geeky google image search helped me make this most adorable and kitschy embroidery projects, a modern Mario Bros inspired out-take of Rne Magritte’s quote Ceci n’est pas une pipe (e. This is not a pipe).

      So do I! Who would have thought Mario Bros and Magritte would be a match made in heaven? ;-)

      P.S. I just uploaded a better close-up in step 2. Enjoy!
