Is it possible to make something aesthetic from something totally unaesthetic?

weekly meat advertising handouts from supermarkets.
My aim was to make a super cute and kitschy dirndl dress with those not so super cute meat and sausage images.
From afar one could think the dress has a polka-dot-pattern.
But if you look closely, you see it´s actually made out of little steaks and sausages.
Here are the patterns I made for the dress:
To make these patterns, I cut out meat images in supermarket advertising:
