Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace.

So without further ado, I welcome you to…

Hi everyone! This week is special: it’s time for a robot parade!

This pair of robot lovers was made by Mooosh, who has done several variations on this theme. So sweet!

Clyde, made by Yoborobo is a bit softer than his other robot counterparts, but I don’t mind. 🙂

This embroidery by rustyfern has all kinds of little details that make it exceptional, and the gesture from the robot really adds to it as well.

This version of (false) Maria from the movie Metropolis was made by silentorchid – very creepy and cool.

This robot themed ATC was made for a swap on craftster. He’s smiling because he has a secret:

Nice to see a robot expressing its feelings. 🙂 fatewineroses made this great piece.

Last but not least, a couple robots goofing around in a photo booth. You see this kind of thing a lot, right? 🙂 This was stitched by Krupp, the queen of nerdy stitching. I love these two and their interactions with each other in every frame. If you love it, too, and want to make one of your own, Krupp has made the pattern available for sale. Go get one here!

I hope you enjoyed this look at our robot friends!
