The Original Macintosh Finder Control Panel, Cross-stitched

I once tried cross-stitching in an art class in school once. I stabbed myself repeatedly in the finger making my DNA part of the project. But if you can avoid the bloody bits, it turns out that cross-stitching is a wonderful way to recreate pixel art. If you worked on an original Macintosh back in your school days, you may recognize this image.

This is the Finder Control Panel from the 1980’s Mac, recreated lovingly in cross-stitch by artist Glenda Adams. This pixel-perfect recreation looks like it was incredibly tedious to make, but it looks amazing. It makes me want to click on all of the little 1-bit icons with my single-button ADB mouse. Check out more pics of Glenda’s amazing Apple creation below:
