This week’s discovery is a homage to Wes Anderson’s Steve Zissou from The Life Aquatic by the talented Kristen aka Thelastromantic. We love a good Zissou at Mr X Stitch (our fabulous Leigh made this awesome patch) and this hand embroidery doesn’t disappoint! I really love all the different size stitches in this piece, from afar it makes it look quite painterly. Lovely stuff. You can check out her Etsy store here. There’s some awesome Bob’s Burgers embroideries looking for a loving home too!
