Stitch Yourself

A collaborative work, in which hundreds of people from around the world made stitched selves, has been on display for one night only at the Science Museum.

the Stitch Yourself exhibit was on display in the main Energy Hall on 30 June 2010.

The gathering of little people included a flasher and a lady busy knitting her own head.

What a wonderful idea! But a great shame it was one night only, I'm sure lots of people might have enjoyed a longer exhibition.

Yes, it is a shame. But at least it's captured in the photographs. A great project, and it's certainly inspired me to think about making a self-portrait in yarn.
