Beautiful car art trades paint and paper for needle and thread

There are many ways to turn the contents of your garage (your car or bike, rather than old washing machines and misshapen bits of wood) into something you’d be pleased to hang on the wall. Painting, sketching, photography … digital art’s big these days too.

One approach you might not have considered, but a pair of enterprising and talented individuals by the handles Stitchy_Mumma and C for Craig can supply, is to have your automotive sculpture rendered with needle and thread. And if it sounds anachronistic, the results are actually rather beautiful.

C for Cross Stitch custom-creates the artworks so it’s not a quick process, but that’s to be expected. Your chosen vehicle, created from reference photos, is first replicated in pixel art (charming in its own right) and the results are ready for review within five working days.

Gary Heflin, owner of Courtesy Automotive, is busy these days.

Eric Oliver, owner of Beyond Exercise gym, has bought two cars from Heflin in the past, and he plans on buying an SUV from Heflin.

“I prefer buying used,” Oliver said. “You can get some good used vehicles in very good shape.”
