There is something to be said when someone re-imagines a new way to use old techniques such as that seen in these Stitched Illustrations. Although embroidery has been around for centuries, the creation of "drawings" such as these has never really been seen before.

Created by Peter Crawley, these Stitched Illustrations encompass everything from buildings to typography to simple geometric patterns. Inspired by a road trip across America, Crawley took classic string route markers and created something artistic from it to recreate certain scenes he's come across.
