Not Your Mom’s Cross Stitching – Needlework for the Modern Girl

Home is where the bra isn't cross stitch
I like to think of myself as a generally crafty girl. Or at the very least, I own a lot of craft supplies. Lately, I’ve been seeing needlework make somewhat of a resurgence. Except this time, people my age aren’t stitching “Home Sweet Home” or Irish proverbs. Instead, people are making stuff with funny/lewd sayings, Beyoncé lyrics and other wonderful stuff. I love this so much.
 
 
If you’re looking to do this yourself, there’s an amazing tutorial on Jezebel to help you do just that.
 
 
If you want the art without the work, check out some of these shops on Etsy.
 
 
Because my life is dope and I do dope sh**. Buy here from ChicagoStitch.
 
 
Surfboard. Buy this or other ones (including the poop emoji) from SewsAndStitches.
 
 
And for those who love decorating their cubicles like me, Cubicle sweet cubicle. Buy here from SuperSassyStitching. 
 
Oh…and the feature graphic…that’s my work so far on my recent cross stitching project. It will eventually say Home is where the bra isn’t. 🙂
