Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace. So without further ado, I welcome you to…


If you’re already a member of the Phat Quarter, the official MrXStitch flickr group, you might already know that there is a comic themed swap going on there. If you aren’t a member, go join! Now!

This week I’m showing off some of the awesome stuff that has come out of the swap so far. Check it out!

A Chick Tract from Snarkypants

Bender Bending Rodriguez from NDBex

Brak from Vegkat

Felix the Cat from Gigglymama

Lex Luthor Took Forty Cakes by Shaebay

Mr Gosh from Lenore, the Cute Little Dead Girl, also by Shaebay

A piece based on a 1965 Playboy cartoon by Schinders

Great stuff so far! I’m going to follow up with another post in a couple weeks as more pieces get posted. Until then I’d like to say thanks to the talented Penny Nickels for organizing and coordinating the swap – you’re the best, Penny!

See you in the Phat Quarter!

Beefranck is the Queen of Ironic Stitching and is responsible for a lot of stuff on, the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet. She is also the top selling pattern designer in the MrXStitch etsy store.
She can often be found hanging out in the Phat Quarter group on Flickr and co-hosts Emergency Pants, a podcast that is not for the faint hearted!
