They Call it DIY for a Reason

One of my favorite DIY blogs has to be Scrap Hackers – Why you ask? Because there is an entire section dedicated to altering Ikea furniture, with post titles such as, “Pimp Your Billy.’ What’s not to like about that?

But in this particular case – I was really drawn to their ‘Itchin’ to be Stitchin‘ posts.

Another Boston based artist, Just Jill took the art of stitching into her own hands with this Van Gogh’s ‘Room at Arles.’ Jill mentioned she has liked Van Gogh since she was a kid, and when she was in college she really gravitated towards stylized painting strokes, and she decided to take on the challenge of capturing that style through stitching.
