It's amazing what embroidery can produce, considering that most people prefer other methods of art production. Inge Jacobsen is one of the few who makes this technique look amazing and inspiring.
Inge Jacobsen has recreated fashion magazine covers using only embroidery. She has painstakingly hand-stitched all of her pieces together in what I can only assume to be many all-nighters filled with lots of caffeine. All of her works are extremely detailed, showcasing intricacy in everything from the expression of the models to the perfectly executed fonts of Vogue. Jacobsen has managed to make fashion magazines for everyone with her impressive and creative interpretation.
If sewing can create works such as this, perhaps it's not such a bad hobby to take up.
