I love cross stitching but have been really frustrated with the lack of designs that are modern and relevant. I want to stitch projects that are fun and colorful and relate to my interests in fine art and pop culture and have a sense of humor whenever possible. I began designing patterns for myself that speak to this philosophy.
Soon as I began stitching I realized that I may not the only one looking for something fun and different and wanted to find a way to share these with the world.
"Orange Flower" is from a series of watercolor flowers I painted that were inspired by Andy Warhol's floral screen prints. Once finished, the design can be made into a traditional pillow. It is also the right size for an evening bag or a tablet cover.
:::::Working with City Stitcher Charts:::::
How to read charts: The design is presented in chart form. Each colored square on the chart represents on cross stitch.
Color/Symbol Key: The color/symbol key indicates the colors of floss to use for each stitch on the chart. All floss numbers listed by their color/symbol key corresponds to the DMC floss chart.
Working with the threads: DMC floss comes in a 6-strand thread. All stitches in this pattern use 2-strand threads. Please separate the thread into 2-strands for cross stitching this pattern

Hi, I have been hooked on needle and thread crafts since my grandmother taught me to sew at age 7. Now I am a professional artist and graphic designer but I still love to sew, embroider, knit, and crochet. I love using traditional crafts to make modern designs. I am now creating cross stitch and crochet patterns based my favorite artists, fashion icons and pop culture references.
