Miyuki Sakai's Sewing Illustrations in Martha Stewart Living

Artist of the Day: Miyuki Sakai

I spotted this spread in the June issue of Martha Stewart Living and fell absolutely in love. San Francisco-based, Osaka-bred artist Miyuki Sakai creates these gorgeous sewing illustrations with nothing but a sewing machine, a straight stitch, and 200 different colors of thread. For the issue, Sakai created beautiful floral plate illustrations, which I think would make a wonderful trompe l'oeil effect on a placemat or tablecloth. But she also sews still life, street life, and portrait illustrations which are equally charming hung in a frame or stitched to a pillow. Here are a few of my favorites.
