35+ Properly Naughty Patterns by Haley Pierson-Cox

Book Description


Profane, funny, and smart, Haley Pierson-Cox's Improper Cross-Stitch invites the modern crafter to bring personality and humour to their cross stitch projects. From a fully designed 'Damn it feels good to be a crafter' to the beautiful Art Deco inspired designs, Haley's patterns are fresh, lively and just what the crafter ordered. In this book, she'll introduce readers to the joys of stitching the naughty, the profane, the irreverent, and the just plain awesome. First, she starts with a basic lesson in cross-stitch technique, no previous experience required. Then, once readers know their way around an embroidery hoop and a skein of floss, the books moves on to the designs - 35 in total, ranging from hip, to nerdy, to ironically domestic - where Haley encourages crafters to embrace their inner snark with gleeful abandon.
