Jacobsen's other embroidery projects include stitching naked ladies over fashion ads.

(The naked ladies are often taken from porn magazines, specifically.)

They certainly "liven" things up — don't scroll any further if you're not ready for an embroidered vagina, just by the way.

Though you might argue that not lining an embroidery nipple up with the hole in this Louis Vuitton model's heels is a missed opportunity.

In other nipply news, Jacobsen sometimes just stitches breasts onto fashion photography because she can.

And let's not forget she also embroidered the Queen once, which is nice.
