Nothing makes me happier than a tiny “fuck” stitched by hand and dressed up in a small ornate, vintage, gilded frame–my original inspiration for starting Subversive Cross Stitch. It still makes me giddy with delight.
The best part is seeing the look on someone’s face when they realize what you’ve just given them. It’s a delicious way to show them that you truly do give a fuck.
I’m sharing my coveted collection of vintage frames by turning them into one-of-a-kind originals, hand-stitched by me. Each piece is in a gilded frame with an antique wallpaper-finished back and signature. The wallpaper samples are actually used in my upcoming 2015 book.
This is a very limited edition of fucks! From $50-150 in our FUCK shop.

New pattern for Father’s Day to match the Mother’s Day MOM Tattoo. This one’s got a bird!
Mother’s Day is right around the corner! We have three PDFs specifically for moms, but there are lots more that may be applicable depending on your mom’s sense of humor.
I love this version of the MOM Tattoo pattern stitched on black material. I always imagine saying, “Hey, mom, I got a tattoo!” then handing this to her to ease her worries.
Whatever you do, she’ll love it because you made it and you know you’re the most talented and beautiful person in the whole world. She’ll probably even hang it on the fridge.
