{ Cross-stitch Revisited }

Don’t you just love it when people take traditional craft and turn it into something fresh and current? Well I certainly do – That’s why I went all giddy when I came across the work of these three super chicks. Their approach to cross-stitch is marked by unconventional materials & subject matter with the essence of the craft as their inspiration.

Janick is the creator of Nea. She has the most amazing jewellery and wall wear range. I love the texture and scale of her jewellery and of course her unique take on cross-stitch.  Check out more of her work on her Etsy page.

I’m a sucker for Typographic art, and I adore this cross-stitch poster from Bubbo-Tubbo. Natasha Mileshina is the designer behind this “we make sense” limited edition series. These prints come signed and personalized, what a great gift. Go check out more of her work here.

How awesome is this stainless steel cross-stitch table, by Imogen Luddy. Do yourself a favour and check out her super wall at Supermarket Sarah. I just love her modern take on doilies.


  1. Love your blog already Linnet, can’t wait to see all the lovely things you have in store for us! Does anyone have an idée how I can recreate the cross-stitch design on an old pinewood chest of drawers?

  2. Hey Almarie, perhaps the easiest way would be a cross-stitch inspired vinyl decal, easy on easy off! Or you could do a stencil.

  3. Almarie, I just remembered about this cool suitcase that was decoupaged with a vintage crochet pattern, this could also work well with a chest of drawers.
