Lightsaber Blueprint Embroidery


High-class “man-broiderer” Lord Libidan elegantly illustrates the specifications of lightsaber construction in this clever embroidered work.

After visiting the Pompidou Centre in Paris, I had an idea for an archaeological blueprint. Also resting in my mind was my recent sabre handle. Within a week I had researched, designed and stitched this piece. I also intend to extend this idea to larger scale projects.

I love the idea of using a blueprint as an embroidery pattern, not only because the lines translate perfectly into needlework, but also because historically embroidery samplers have often depicted houses, churches, and other images similar to a blueprint!
