Illegitimi Non Carborundum

Sewing Projects

Translation: Don’t let the bastards grind you down.

Illegitimi Non Carborundum square

Needlecraft is like meditation, only at the end you have a thing. A sailor-tattoo inspired latin embroidered thing, in this case.

No specific instructions here: just sketch out a design on paper, place it under your fabric and light it from beneath (to trace it onto the fabric with a pencil), and keep sewing until your stress goes away. You are welcome to use my design if you like it (CC BY-NC-SA yada yada).

BTW did you see this amazing Anders/Justice amigurumi by Tattered Pantaloons? They used my Liara pattern as a starting point and it turned out so well! I love the look of the glow-in-the-dark thread.
