KEEP THE INTERNET FREE FROM GOVERNMENT CONTROL
Based on a t-shirt from the band Atari Teenage Riot which I love but hardly wear because it's a men's size.
The hardest thing was getting the pattern just right, I wanted to keep the spacing between the letters of each line the same. Another difficulty was keeping the stitches as white as possible, which meant washing my hands all the time and using a frame instead of a hoop Wink

+-6500 white and some silver stitches on 18-count black aida.


A couple of detail shots.
