Recently, ReadyMade hosted the RM100, a "contest to celebrate 100 ingenious and beautiful DIY projects submitted to their host of savvy judges." My favorite of the bunch is this clever, easy, and big-impact oversized cross stitch art. I love the colors, and the 3D effect created with two layers of stitches.
For contemporary crafters, the old script-y, serif-y cross stitch alphabets simply won't do. So, Tamara Maynes has created the Helvetica Cross Stitch kit, an A-to-Z cross stitch design chart that allows you to incorporate the Swiss school classic and the world's most popular typeface into your handmade goodies.
