Viva La Vulva!

I wasn’t going to show this off here due to the whole twee reason I gave last post, but I’m quite proud of it so I can hardly help it.

I’m not going to explain it, partly because I can barely remember the reason for reaching this point but I embroidered a labia.

This was successful, to the point of Mr X Stitch choosing it for his craftster pick of the week... shucks!

Then I decided to make a fabric banner/flag/thing embroidered with that wonderful slogan “viva la vulva!” and I used this wonderful font free from allsorts. It took a long time but now I’ve got another thing to put in my portfolio. Yay!

I also experimented with some tinting… which I can’t say I’d do again.

I’ve got plenty more to do for my portfolio before rest comes… so you can look forward to that. In the meantime, there’s a new theme over at Tie One On!

    I absolutely love this!!!! I am a sexuality educator and coach and this month my women’s class was called “Viva la Vulva!”

    Maybe I’ll need you to make one for all of my girls!

    This is great!

    Slightly related (or maybe not, but bear with me)… Every day I walk to work past a giant graffiti’d penis scrawled in yellow spray paint on the pavement – and it get’s me thinking; ‘Why aren’t there more Vulvas scribbled everywhere, like there are penises?’.

    I mean, there are certainly quite a few men who are drawing cocks (in toilet cubicles, on bus shelters, wherever) in that juvenile ‘yay cocks!’ manner, but where are the women going ‘yay vulvas!’

    Perhaps I shall have to start the trend…

      There’s a pub on Commercial Road, east London called The George Tavern, and the plaster on the toilets ALWAYS reminds me of vulvas. Next time I go I’ll take a pen with me and make sure it reminds everyone else of vulvas too. Courtesy of Sarah Barnes, ha.
