Work with a Pin-Up

pinup

Want to work with a pin-up? Cross-stitch pattern, that is. These kitschy pin-ups are some of my favorite retro illustrations, and my earliest cross-stitch pattern creations were based on famous pin-up art from the 1950’s.

You can find these and lots more saucy fabulousness at my Etsy shop – I have so many available, they even have their very own category!

Remember, all patterns are currently buy 3, get 3 FREE, so it’s a great time to put lots of unique projects in your hopper!

Happy stitching!
