Made by Lera Petunina, these highly detailed pieces of embroidery depict birds and butterflies, as well as brunch-worthy food items like asparagus with a fried egg and salads and sandwiches.

The Instagram account is an accompaniment to the artist’s Etsy shop where all of the embroidery can be bought. All of the pieces of embroidery are one-offs that the artist refuses to repeat and come as either pins or pendants, although there is an occasional embroidered choker or blouse. They are available to be shipped worldwide from Siberia.

Petunina is also an illustrator who takes part in art projects and exhibitions in her native Novosibirsk.
