Vegetable gardens can be grown in a variety of ways. Using a needle and thread, the Japanese artist @konekono kitsune grows their own fresh food. Their needlework work is so rich it could fill a cornucopia, featuring everything from bell peppers to snap peas to turnips.
To more closely resemble their real-life counterparts, all of these hand-stitched vegetables have been recreated with three-dimensional texture. By taking pictures of each completed item over the source material, @konekono kitsune demonstrates their accuracy. For instance, their depiction of kale features tangles of various knots that replicate the curly texture of the leaf.
Additionally, a composition with three pictures of the vegetable can be found in many of @konekono kitsune’s finished works. With just a few little adjustments to the plant, such as the bend of the leaves or the angle of the crop, the artist uses this design to produce a pleasant repeating pattern. As an illustration, their embroidery of a bell pepper includes two views of the entire vegetable from various angles as well as one picture of a chopped chunk with the seeds within.
