This isn't quite your grandma's needlepoint. Swedish artist Ulla Stina Wikander takes old, often outdated objects and breathes life into them by covering every inch of them in scenic embroidery.

From cross-stitch to knitting, skills that were once only popular with past generations have come back en vogue in recent years. But Wikander isn't working with a traditional hoop; her art covers a rotary telephone, a cassette recorder, even an entire sewing machine and table.

Her website describes how she creates her pieces (translation from Swedish by Google): "The designs I have collected for many years, and to place them in a new context makes the change. I see beauty in adding different images side by side, to create new designs. The things that changes character depending on its 'attire', such as stroller that becomes a sculpture."
