Birth of a Unicorn by Paul Nosa

This embroidery entitled ‘Birth of a Unicorn’ is by American artist and fellow #boyswhosew Paul Nosa.

Paul has developed his own portable bicycle/solar powered sewing machine. The Solar Rover is a portable sewing machine table made entirely from aluminium. To sew anywhere anytime the Rover is powered by a solar panel and/or a bicycle electric generator.

He has been touring around with this contraption for some time attending various events and exhibitions. On each occasion he invites members of the public to provide him with a phrase or scenario in five words of less to embroider using his homemade machine. So far he estimates to have embroidered over 200 such patches and they form quite a beautiful collection. You can view many of them on Paul’s website here.
