Needlework Good Enough to Eat!

16th July 2021

While we’ve showcased stitched food in our newsletter before, even we would have to admit we’ve never seen anything quite as realistic as the creations produced by British textile artist Youmeng Liu.

British food seems to be Youmeng’s inspiration and using her unique 3D punchneedle technique, she has recreated every British favourite from a full English breakfast through to Yorkshire puddings. It is almost difficult to believe that these art works aren’t edible!

Youmeng’s plan is to create 301 food items. So far, she’s made 19 and she shows no sign of stopping in her quest. So be sure to watch as she puts her talents to the test at her Instagram page @embroiderycode or you can read more about her work HERE.
