Decorate your home with towels bordered in barbed wire, jar covers crawling with bugs or a set of pillows that feature a fly meeting a comic book splat! demise. Create cool accessories like a game over laptop cover or a tweet this phone case, or stitch a scarily realistic stab wound onto a tee shirt. Projects range from easy designs for newcomers to the craft to advanced projects that will appeal to experienced cross stitchers. The book includes a pocket on the back cover with full size fold-out charts of the larger designs.
Phil Davison is a London based patterncutter, who after taking time off from the couture fashion world, learned to crossstitch in Arkansas, where an elderly family friend taught him the basics. On returning to London, Phil was inspired to combine his newfound love of cross-stitch with his existing love of street art, so created his own brand, Urban Cross Stitch.
