Rude Cross Stitch Comes to Your Very Own Fingertips

Over ten years ago, Julie Jackson was frustratedly wandering through a craft store, looking to release some anger on a doodad or two. She came upon the embroidery/cross stitching section, saw the possibilities outlined in the cute teddy bears and inspirational sayings, and decided to add her own wording instead: “Fuck.”

Since then, her creation has spawned a whole community of rude cross stitchers yearning to express themselves in the yarn world. We rounded up our favorites back in September and now you have the chance to make your very own, with Jackson’s new book Subversive Cross Stitch: 50 F*cking Clever Designs for Your Sassy Side, which comes out today. Check out some highlights in the gallery above and grab your own copy here.
