In my home country, sewing lessons are compulsory for girls, which always annoyed me as a tomboy. However, it’s an ability that can come in handy from time to time when a quick repair can fix a small tear that would otherwise damage an otherwise pristine item.

However, some people have an incredible talent and ability to envision the end product they can create with a needle and thread. These amazing designs almost rival high fashion and deserve attention on the r/sewing subreddit. Scroll down to see the impressive collection of masterpieces that ordinary people have created by machine sewing, embroidery, quilting or hand sewing.
