Although I've been working on these designs little by little for the last 6 weeks or so, I'm not completely done with them. These are a SNEAK-PEEK into some of the awesomeness that will be revealed bit by bit to my fans within the next couple of months. :)
Inspired by 8-bit pixel art and a love for anything crafted from needle & thread, I started designing these items in January in hopes of having a whole like done for Valentine's Day 2011.
And as that deadline whooshed past, I started concentrating less on the quantity of my designs and more on the quality.
As a few of the followers on my Facebook Fan Page put it, the designs are a bit simple, but that's okay! I'm excited about just doing something new and awesome. :) I plan on hand-printing the patterns with our screen-printing set up in our basement once I get about 6 kits ready.
But before that step, how about doing a PREVIEW GIVEAWAY for a lucky follower to win a free kit to test it out!?!Since this is a BRAND-SPANKING NEW product, you'll be winning a prototype kit which includes:
- A piece of ivory cotton 16-count cross stitch fabric with the pattern hand-drawn with a washable fabric pen
- An embroidery hoop to do your stitching
- A needle & all necessary colours of DMC embroidery floss for the pattern
HOW TO ENTER TO WIN:
- Just leave a comment below! :) Easy peasey!
It'd be awesome if you'd spread the word about nerd JERK, but it's not required to enter the giveaway. Also, this giveaway totally includes international customers & fans. I know a lot of people don't do that, but I'd love to be able to see what people can do with some of my new Nerdy Cross-Stitch Kits!
The winner will be randomly chosen on Sunday, 6th March, 2011!
Until then, look for the full line of Nerdy Cross-Stitch Kits from nerd JERK in Summer 2011.
Thanks everyone & good luck!
