Tweets may only be 140 characters long but in the world of stiching, that’s a whole lot of thread.
Just ask Amy Sheridan, of Santa Maria, Calif., a Twitter fanatic who has turned three of Kanye West’s tweets into framed embroideries. The limited edition pieces were a huge hit on Etsy where all 27 of them have sold out. They were also featured on the Huffington Post today.
“Regardless of whether or not you're a fan of Kanye's music, his award show outbursts or his new fashion line, you have to admit that his Twitter is pure comedy gold,” wrote Sheridan on Etsy.
“Really, though, Kanye's just saying what we're all thinking - who amongst us hasn't lamented the inability to procure a decent cherub-decorated rug or, at one time or another, needed to apologize to Taylor Swift?”
Sheridan has agreed to an interview with the Daily Dot later this afternoon. In the meantime, here are some of her embroideries.
