I expect subversion from cross-stitch but needlepoint? Oh my word! Crude Canvases is the name of this NSFW Etsy shop.
I think I might be a Bitch – Hand painted needlepoint canvas by Crude Canvases on Etsy
Rude, crude and socially unacceptable but kind of delightful too. Needlepoint does really have subversive canvases, but I usually only see a couple or so from a designer or shop. Introducing Crude Canvases where that’s ALL they do. The canvas above is one of their more subdued designs. I highly recommended seeing all that they have to offer. It’s worth a chuckle. Some content, like female artforms, are hidden behind a Sensitive Content warning for Extra Crude. Just fyi.
Make sure to read through the Instagram post embedded below. I like how they are open and honest about what their designs are about. For instance: “We don’t want people to look at these designs and only think of profanity, disgust, or shock value. We want you to think of how these emotions can change or alter a person’s perception of how they live and think.” – Crude Canvases
Oh! For more enticing designs, you can always head to the top of Frogging News Blogazine and select Needlepoint. Then look for Shop Painted Canvases.
