Angeli Sobrepena from the Philippines rekindled her childhood interest in cross-stitch by integrating it with polymer! She creates her design, leaves holes for stitching with embroidery floss, and bakes the clay.
It looks like Angeli finishes her pieces with a backing of felt to hide the thread on the back (or the backing could be an oval of polymer that she rebakes).
These make cute crossover projects for our embroidering friends who have a hard time putting down the needle! Find more of Angeli’s work on Flickr.
