The work of Laura Pineiro is utterly adorable. She takes classic sewing equipment, namely thimbles, and creates medieval soldier armor. By expertly cutting one side to make it appear like the front of a helmet and then adding plumage on the top, Laura Pineiro designs stunning replicas of Roman attire. She has even created a tiny sword using a common sewing needle.

Based in Western Spain, Laura Pineiro is inspired by the sewing world as a whole. She writes, "The recovery of the different experiences performed through the stitch, regularly used as a mechanism for reconstructing the past, sometimes even lived, resulting in the creation of this own. Patchwork of experiences that hang in the balance are rescued from oblivion towards that target, to become an amulet against becoming."
