Cross sitch is 'in Vogue'

Here at the Ministry we are fans of all things craft, especially when a traditional technique is given a contemporary twist, which is exactly what Inge Jacobson has done with her cross stitched Vogue covers. Taking nearly a month to create, they really are a labour of love...but we think they are well worth it. We also enjoy Inge's concept behind the work, "I like the idea of having something mass produced become unique and handmade." After all the attention on knitting and crochet and a certain 'cool' status being achieved due to their use in top designers collections, we think it's high time cross stitch got a look in too. What better way to do it than on the front cover of Vogue!
