40 Sewing-Inspired Innovations

From Futuristic Sewing Machines to Unique Sewing Needles

— September 12, 2010 — Art & Design
The sewing-inspired innovations collected here won't put you in stitches, but they may inspire you to make stitches of your own. If you need a needle or a sewing machine or a really good sewing idea, you'll find it here.

If you're not into sewing, you might consider buying pre-patched denim so you look like you sew. If that doesn't curl your toes, maybe body modifying button suture will.

Implications - Sewing is just one of those areas that you do not think about when it comes to innovation. Be prepared to be blown away with this fantastic collection of 40 sewing-inspired innovations. After having a look be sure to leave your thoughts in the comment section below to join the conversation.
