Big up to new manbroiderer Pierre for sharing his Steven Seagal cross stitch, made for his wife. Here’s what he had to say:
“First of all; let’s be clear, the choice of Seagal as a model was ironic, I’m not that much of a fan. It’s my wife that got me in cross stitching, she was making some cool stuff and I was like “hey why not start something”. I didn’t take it seriously at the beginning but I quickly became an addict, that bloody thing is like a drug!”
And there you have it. The conversion of an innocent man into a manbroiderer. A magnificent sign of our times!
If you know any manbroiderers, send ‘em our way. It’s a safe space here.
It’s week 8 of the 52 Challenge and this week I’ve upcycled a design I did a few years ago for a friend. He’d just become a father and at the time, all he said was “Awesome Sauce”. So I made him a bottle and now you can do the same!
