Get your needles and thread ready because embroidery is officially making a comeback. A couple weeks ago we showed you the adorable projects Taylor Swift and Lauren Conrad recently showed off on their Instagram feeds and now it looks like Mindy Kaling is joining in on the DIY fun.
In a recent Instagram, Kaling shared this mini cross-stitched piece a fan made for her. She captioned the photo, “Someone gave this to me after my book signing at the Grove. It’s a beautiful cross-stitch of Danny in red glasses and Mindy. I love it! But I don’t have your info, it got lost in bringing it all back to my office. Will you tell me who you are? Edited to add: it was made by @whynotsara!! I love it! Thank you!”
This itty bitty cross-stitch is kind of the cutest gift we’ve ever seen and it actually probably didn’t take all that long to make. Hmm, we’re getting some Christmas gift ideas… If Sara’s artwork has inspired you to take a stab (get it?!) at the old-make-new art form, try grabbing Love and Pigeons’ Embroidery Kit ($25) from the B+C shop that comes with everything you need to get started on a pretty, custom piece of art.
