Human Hair Embroidery

Bogota-based Zaira Pulido has been asking every one of her friends and people she’s into for strands of their hair to use in a series of embroidered artworks. She uses the human hair instead of the usual thread and creates various works, like embroidered portraits of her friends (each made with their own hair), an embroidered comb or a replica of her bra. I noticed some people find working with human hair disgusting, but personally I like seeing hair used as an art medium, and Zaira Pulido’s work is right up my alley.” w/ photos

But I wanted my very own pie, a pie I didn’t have to share and so the obvious place to have gone with this would have been with hand pies… I wondered exactly how tiny I could make them and from there my brain latched onto the idea of cookie pies. Teeny tiny adorable cookie pies. I may have finally lost it… here’s how to make apple pie cookies.” w/ photos
