I am in love with Locher's dirty embroidery. And I mean in LOVE. I am so intrigued by the idea that something looks innocent, girly, and cute at first glance...but futher observation proves otherwise.
Soooooo, I decided to create a top inspired by their "I Heart Porn" shirt, seen here: http://www.lochers.com/collection8.html.
My top started off as a plain green, I added the pastel yellow stencil, created by me, and the yellow lace trim for added innocent-ness.

I bought a whole heap of pastel shirts and tops to create into Locher inspired pieces. Next I'm going for the "I Hate Children", seen here:http://www.lochers.com/collection14.html I love it!
P.S. Thanks to this thread for opening my eyes to Locher: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=169708.0
Disclaimer: I don't love porn. I've never even seen one...not that there is anything wrong with the adult film business.
Disclaimer II: I don't hate children.

What do you guys think?

I like it. The green and (looks like) pale yellow go really well together. I also like the fact that you look at it and when you read it your like "Oh okay porn..." not like "Oh jeez creep." It still has that girly aspect which I like.

Porn is funny! From what I've heard of course.
I just requested an embroidery kit from the DIY swap so hopefully, I can really do these shirts right.

Oh very nice! I'd caution you against wearing slogans that you don't actually agree with, though. I mean, obviously you're okay with people thinking you heart porn... just remember, people are going to think you heart porn. (BTW, I'd pick porn over children any day.  Grin )

Oh yeah, this is what my mom was telling me. "You do know people are going to think you really like it.."
But, I hope some will see is as a funny joke...I hope...
And, yeah, me too. Porn is way awesomer!

Fantastic! I saw that shirt featured in some magazine.. possibly socialitelife.com.. anyway, I looooove it! Your version is awesome! And probably not $74!

I NEED THAT SHIRT. I coincidentally work in the porno industry. (behind the scenes) I require that shirt!!! Perhaps I will make one for my boss! (the one in front of the camera!)
