Description

Gone are the days of the old-fashioned stitch samplers and cross stitch baby animals. The next generation of stitching has arrived! "Stitch Graffiti: Unexpected Cross-Stitch" puts a new twist on this classic craft with a collection of twenty-six stylish, witty, and playful designs with the modern crafter in mind.Heather Holland-Daly livens up the craft with her graphic designs, tattoo imagery, and quotations found in song lyrics, literature, movies, and even truck stops and bathroom walls. Begin with an introduction to cross stitch with patterns that follow for decorating clothes, accessories, home accents, and gifts. Heather's playful approach to cross stitch is showcased on everything from wall hangings and jean jackets to fly swatters and handbags.In addition, Heather offers "Liner Notes", which are creative sidebars throughout the book on designing original projects, embellishing designs with beads, tips for dyeing fabric backgrounds and fantastic framing ideas using found objects, hardware, and more. Plus every project features Heather's funny, offbeat take on what inspired the design, and how to personalize it. Whether you're an experienced needleworker looking for a fresh take on cross-stitch or complete beginner, "Stitch Graffiti" has everything you need to stitch with success.
