That’s probably because your stitching is hella uneven.
You can’t tell me you aren’t tired of these stupid little nonsense sayings being sloppily embroidered on fabric and then plastered on Tumblr for notes! I’ve seen tons of these and they look horrible! I’m not the only person that thinks this!
Who gives a shit if they look horrible? My fucking artwork looks horrible! But, do you know what? I don’t make it for you or anyone else. I make it for me. And, yeah, I put it online. I put my writing online. Because I want someone to see it, other than me. Not necessarily because I want fame or because I think I’m the best at whatever the hell I’m doing, but because I want to be noticed. I want this thing that holds meaning to me to be noticed. To be accepted. Because, just maybe, I don’t get noticed in real life.
Maybe that goddamn quote means something to the person who spent the time to embroider it? Words spoke to them and they decided they were going to try their hand at some art. They’re not masters at the craft, but they fucking tried. And they inspired others to try. And so you get “all these stupid little nonsense sayings being sloppily embroidered on fabric and then plastered on Tumblr for notes!”
What a fine attitude to have towards something that may mean something to someone else.
I highly doubt this meant anything beyond, “Hey I want notes let me string together some words that sound meaningful and embroider them on an old T-shirt! NOTES!”
This literally probably took like 5 minutes….
And maybe it’s art to you, but to me it’s the 100th one I’ve seen and I’m not going to pretend it was some deeply thought out thing when it clearly was not.
You can jump on your soap box and lecture me all you want, but I reblog beautiful and homemade art all the time, art that’ll never been seen in galleries but should be. Art that people on here took hours to create.
Then I see this….
5 minutes of sloppy hipster quotes….
It’s like when someone takes a good book and blacks out the whole page except a few words or a quote that’s supposed to sound meaningful to me.
And also my opinion.
On my blog.
excuse me i watched three whole episodes of the x-files while embroidering this. how dare you say it’s “sloppy”
