Celebrate Inauguration Day with Crafty Stitchescomments (2) January 20th, 2009
Check out this crocheted portrait of Barack Obama by Todd Paschall. He's a fiber artist who transforms photographs into crocheted works of art. You can get the pattern of our newest leader for free—just email him your request through his website and he will send it to you. (Thanks to Manhattan Craft Room for the heads up!) He'll also transform your photo into a shaded colorwork pattern for a nominal fee.
The colorwork definitely looks challenging...but I'm sure you'd be able to finish it sometime within the next four years.
