Modern Cross Stitch Patterns
to Celebrate Drag & The LGBTQIA+ Community
Embroidery gets a modern makeover in the new Cross Stitch Like A Queen pattern book, so it’s time to get out your needle and thread.
Years ago, I did a whole lot of cross stitching, so I’m happy to see this fun and relaxing hobby come back in style.
And, yes, this drag queen themed cross stitch pattern book has a whole lot of style!
You can enjoy the process of doing the needlework and your finished Drag Queen cross stitch projects will be fun to put on display in your home or to give as a gift.
The book is a pleasure to read and the needlework patterns are easy to follow.
Most of the projects are suitable for beginners, but there are also others with more intricate designs and multiple colors that are recommended for those who are ready for more of a challenge.
There is a whole chapter with illustrated options for substitute color schemes and a full alphabet for those who want to add some personalization.
