Unusual Cross Stitch

I have been playing with the concepts of stitching through solid objects.  I have only created a few pieces so far but will become a on going project.

Cross Stitched Koi
This cymbal had been thrown in a skip, It took me a while to decide what I was going to stitch into it but eventually a Koi underwater seemed like a good way to go.

The Plastic Tattoo. Over 60 hrs work went into this piece. The cross stitching goes through the plastic torso.
