While I was hunting around for cross stitch items on Etsy in connection with September’s Etsomnia™ 197: In Stitches, I came across the wonderful work of Awesome Pattern Studio. Their designs were so wonderfully artistic, I knew they deserved their own post.
Made by artist Olena Gliboka, they are sold by the full kit or the downloadable pattern. There are a few popular characters (Disney, etc.) in there as well, but the vast majority of the art is by Gliboka herself. She’s got a remarkable sense of color and balance, and her designs would work equally well as paintings, were she so inclined. I find them really beautiful.
“I’m an artist since my early childhood. I’m a needlework enthusiast for more than 10 years (grandma – thank you!). I have a great desire to popularize the beauty of hand craft all over the world.”
