Even the hamster from Fleabag gets pride of place.

What’s not to love about Minia Banet’s work? The Spanish embroiderer and crochet whizz combines her love of film and pop culture with some major craft skills, resulting in some wonderful pieces of wall art. Minia's business Variopinto is like a shrine to some of the raddest ladies in art and cinema history: a quick scroll over here and you’ll be treated to vintage-style images of Frida Kahlo, Fleabag and Audrey Horne, each decorated with Minia’s delicate stitches. Take a gander below or pop by Minia's Etsy store to pick up a special piece.
