Description

For Christmas I made my friend a cross stitch with lyrics from The Smiths.

I admit I did copy the idea from another person but only because I didnt have the time to wait for it to be made and then sent from the US, so I did it myself within a couple of days.

I Wanted to do it on Navy or Brown Aida cloth but my local craft store only sells white or pink. how boring!

I left it in the embroidery hoop to be hung as is.

Material Notes

White aida cloth and black floss

Difficulty

Intermediate

    Love it!! Just looking through your studio to see all your work and came across this! I’m a huge Morrissey and Smiths fan and love to make related fan stuff for me and my friends – this just gave me another idea. Thank you :)

      everyone’s said it’s very Madmen, I must have been inspired without realising it! :)
