Twisted Stitches: 30 Corrupt Cross Stitch & Embroidery Designs


For crafters who like their stitching with a twist, this book reworks or reimagines fine embroidery and cute craft imagery so that they cross over to the dark side. Think charming cottages with roses around the door - and trash and abandoned vehicles in the front yard, or napkins embroidered with pretty but poisonous plants. Projects include a RIP (read in peace) bookmark, a butterfly and skulls tote bag, and a pig strikes back barbecue apron. Inspired by popular culture and street art, it's the craft equivalent of the Jane Austin and vampire novel smash-up and is guaranteed to amuse. The book contains 30 original cross stitch and embroidery designs, organised by project type (eg home or clothing). Projects read more
