Clever hand-stitched artworks that look like colourful pencil drawings

If you enjoyed Lauren Spark's hand-stitched interpretation of Van Gogh's Starry Night and the intricate sewn artworks of Chloe Giordano, then artist Lisa Smirnova should definitely impress.

Her hand-embroidered artworks – which could easily be mistaken for coloured pencil drawings – are in fact crafted using thread, cotton and other such materials – and can take months to complete. Interestingly, Smirnova doesn't just stick to cotton canvases; she also loves to stitch interesting patterns and shapes onto clothing and home accessories, adding interest to jumpers, cardigans and cushions.
