Over the past two or three years, I’ve been really into cross-stitching using photographs as source images. While most of my projects have been either musical icons or portraits of friends/family, I’ve finally figured out how to combine my love of cross-stitching with another specific interest: album covers. In the picture above, both projects are close to the actual size of an LP record. Here’s a closeup to see more of the detail:
At some point, I might see about doing commissioned work, although it’d have to be priced quite high because cross-stitching is so time consuming. Right now, I’ve just finished my first draft of a how-to guide for this type of project, along with the techniques that I’ve developed for it.
What I could use now are a couple of beta-testers. I’m looking for people who’ve done cross-stitch before and other crafty folks who have never tried it but are interested in learning. I just need to make sure that my instructions are understandable and valuable. Beta-testers will receive a free copy of the final product. If you or someone you know fits this description, contact me here.
I’ll also be posting more pictures as finish other projects. Eventually, I’d like to do some posts about the albums and album art used for specific projects.
