MythBusters Embroideries

MythBusters embroidery“I reject your reality and substitute my own!”

I just spotted CraftyOctober’s amazing MythBusters embroideries on Craftster, which were made as part of an embroidery diptych swap.

It’s the details of these seemingly simple pieces that amaze me: the metallic thread on the glasses and the careful attention to the texture of the hair. Especially Jamie’s gloriously bushy beard, which was made using a technique called turkey work.
