Gorgeous embroidery art looks like a vegetable garden

There is more than one way to cultivate a vegetable garden. japanese artist @konekono_kitsune grows its own fresh produce using needle and thread. From turnips to snow peas to bell peppers, their embroidery art is lush enough to fill a cornucopia.

All of these hand-stitched vegetables are rendered with a three-dimensional texture so that they look more like their real-life counterparts. @konekono_kitsune shows off their precision by photographing each finished piece as they draw inspiration. For example, their rendition of kale mimics the curly consistency of leaves with tangles of different knots.

Additionally, many of @konekono_kitsune’s finished works feature a composition with three illustrations of the vegetable. The artist uses this design to create a pleasing repeating pattern with slight variations of the plant, such as in the curvature of the leaves or the angle of the crop. For example, their embroidery of a bell pepper features two whole vegetables from different angles and a view of a cut piece with the seeds inside.
