I’ve been a fan and contributor to the You Are Beautiful project for years. It’s a simple message to share with the world and spread a little kindness, through various art forms and also their iconic stickers–stuck where you least expect them. I stitched this piece to celebrate their 10th year and their upcoming book which was financed through Kickstarter.
To match their sticker, I actually painted the material with silver spray paint and it worked out fine! The instructions with this pattern include tips in case you want to do the same.
The PDF pattern is FREE–spread the message with the world–You Are Beautiful! And be sure to check out their awesome website.
Subversive stitcher Hillary sent in this hilarious photo of her dog with our PDF pattern she stitched and said, “My dog’s name is Hank, he’s a ten-year-old, bitter, gay, Australian Shepherd. He could be straight, but I dunno, he’s a level of bitter only old drag queens usually achieve.” LOL! She also said that cross stitch is “crack—methodical, soothing crack.” Ha!
UPDATE: I’m not selling these on this site at the moment, but stay tuned–I’m opening up a separate shirt shop with lots of designs! More to come…
Cute, huh? Now you take the all-cotton Subversive logo gal with you and strike up a conversation about your favorite subversive hobby!
And if you stay tuned to our Facebook page, you might just win one!
I love this product so much and, judging by how many I’ve been selling, I think you do too! So I thought I’d start offering the large roll. It has five times the amount of the smaller roll and it lasts for a very long time, believe me. For you seriously productive stitchers.
To celebrate our 10th year in bizznass, the fine folks at Busy Beaver Buttons made these adorable pin and magnet packs for us! Squee! Want one? I’m including them for FREE in all orders over $50 beginning today (until supplies last) OR if you really want one bad you can just buy the pack here.
As you probably know, I love Busy Beaver and they’ve been doing all the buttons, pins, magnets and bottle openers that I include in orders for every one of the past 10 years. They’re great to work with and it’s fun to see them constantly expand their line.
This pack includes three 1.5″ pins and the “Fancy Fuck” piece is a magnet. They’ll be FREE with orders over $50 while supplies last, or if you can’t wait you can order one here right now. Super-collectible, don’t you think? This should be put in a time capsule and opened in 3013!
Wear them all at once and display your Subversive pride with SPIRIT! Hee!
It’s time to redirect your attention from whatever has been distracting you from the one you LOVE*
What’s been keeping you from showering your sweetheart with all the attention they deserve? Pinterest? Facebook? New technology? Liquor? Kitten videos? Now’s the time to make up for it with a custom message you stitched yourself while you thought about your love with every single “x”. Awwwww.
Available in two versions: Single Valentine Kit ($10) and Enough for Three Valentine Kit ($15) Every kit comes with a sheet of suggested words, alphabet and extra blank grid for you to plan your message. Here are a couple we created:
* (you can also create the message “I Like You..” if it’s more platonic).
Over the Christmas break I read a column by Mark Morford about the whole gun debate and this phrase struck me. So I stitched it, on a doily of course.
Just getting back into the swing of things here, working on lots of stuff for our 10th year celebration. Catching up on shipping. Otherwise, it’s all kittens, kittens, kittens. We’ve named them Wedowee and Paducah!
THANK YOU for the amazing holiday season, it’s been our best and biggest one in 10 years of Subversive Cross Stitch.
I am going off the grid and taking an official break as I am completely exhausted. I hope you’ll be resting as well and enjoying the offline life.
I will return to start digging through email on January 7th, 2013 and start with a clean slate. This means if you haven’t received a reply by January 11, 2013, you’ll need to write to me again as I will assume your issue has been resolved or your order has been received in the meantime.
This also means that, except for PDF orders which are sent automatically, there will be NO SHIPPING until late in the week of January 7th, 2013 beginning, as always, with Priority Mail orders.
There will be a lot to look forward to in 2013, as we continue to celebrate our 10th year in business, beginning with all-new Valentines! So stay tuned.
Thanks again for everything: your love, support, kind words, enthusiasm…you make my work so enjoyable. Happy New Year and lots of love,
p.s. We have two new flamepoint Siamese kittens who have patiently been waiting for me to stop working so we can start playing. Introducing Wedowee and Paducah!
Sale ends at midnight CST on Monday, November 26, 2012. Go get ‘em!
