I'm calling these embroidered graffiti because I picture them hanging on walls outdoors, sort of like art actions...

Those are cool. I love the idea of stitching things and putting them in public spaces for people to think about. I want to do mini samplers that just say "wake up!" and stick them all over the place.
Great work here Craftcore - let's see some more!  Grin

Awesome message! If I saw these out in public, they would make me so happy.

holy freak these are GREAT!

Love

Love!!

have you considered installing them outside?  I'm thinking gluing them with super strong glue in a difficult to reach but easy to read spot.

Yay you! This is so going on my blog.

I bet you don't live in Milwaukee, cuz if you did, I'd already have tracked you down and  we'd be reigning chaos in the streets. Wink
BTW- if you do put these outside, I think wheat paste is the way to go. At least in my state, using wheat paste is not technically considered "graffiti" at this time, so it falls in a gray area.

thanks you all for the comments!

i used the cursive font deliberately because it makes it look a bit innocent. and this is actually the way i write.

i've thought about putting them outside in public, but i don't want them to get damaged or disappear. that's what i find a pity about street art, that it isn't permanent... but otherwise i really like the idea of putting them on walls in public spaces.

These are really cool, such a fun idea!! You could just hang them out of a front window if you live in a pulbic place. People do that with banners round here alot. Go crafters!!
