Grab your sewing kits and go!

I'd better not fall asleep on a train then.

Interesting and rather beautiful the stitches and the idea.

Cute idea :) Hope it catches on here too - erm, not least because even just plain ordinary stitching could improve the seating on some of Britain's less well maintained public transport...

oh, man. DC public transit has hard plastic seats, so it'll never work here. very cute.

I've spent about 20 minutes staring at these pictures and trying to think of something intelligent to write about cross-stitch designs on public transport seating.

Thank you for reminding me of my limitations.

What a lovely idea. You'd have to have your needle threaded before getting on the train/tram/bus, though otherwise you might stab yourself, which would be a different sort of art altogether.

Apologies, I have been bit absent lately. Not sharpening my needle, but sneezing.
