stitch yourself!

All these wonderful little packages have been arriving for my studio mate Lauren O'Farrell, full of people's knitted self portraits. They're a collaboration between Stitch London and London's Science Museumfor an exhibition called Stitch Yourself, which launches with re-opening of their Who Am I? gallery in June 2010.

These two fab ladies showed up this morning:

You, too, can participate! Here are the guidelines:
1. Your Stitched Self must be approx. 6 inches/15 cm tall
2. Your Stitched Self must arrive before the 26th of June 2010
3. You must include your name (you can make a name up if you're shy) and where you are from
Details, and where to send it.

OMG these are fantastic! So well done, my skills are not up to that. Can i cross stitch a picture of myself - that is much more my forte.

Just asked Lauren, and she says it needs to be something 3-D that can be hung up. But you could use the felt pattern on the website and stitch on that. (I think that's what I'm going to try to do.)

Wow that was a quick response. I shall investigate further and see what I can accomplish :)
