Get stitching with this first-of-its-kind collection of creative and colorful patterns inspired by drag queens, pride, and the LGBTQIA+ community.

Introducing Cross-Stitch Like a Queen: 25 Fun and Fabulous Patterns Celebrating Drag and the LGBTQIA+ Community by David Hastings [ISBN: 9781646042517; $17.95; Ulysses Press; October 2021], a new full-color book with step-by-step instructions to craft 25 fierce and feisty cross-stitching creations.

Inspired to give back and support the community, Hastings will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the book to The Trevor Project. Hastings, who moonlights as drag queen Dottie Salami in Brooklyn, also provides a list of organizations supporting the LGBTQIA+ community on a resources page at the end of the book.

With designs ranging from sexy pumps to iconic quotes, and extra design material to create your own custom patterns, crafty queens and drag enthusiasts alike will love this book. Get ready to stitch fabulous patterns like:

"DON’T GET BITTER, GET BETTER."

"NOT TODAY, SATAN."

"CHECK YOUR LIPSTICK BEFORE YOU COME FOR ME."

THE PROGRESS PRIDE FLAG

"PRIDE IS A RIOT"

"BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER"

"ALL TEA, ALL SHADE"

AND MUCH MORE!

The patterns range from easy to difficult—"difficult" categorized as such because the patterns include backstitching. "Once you get the hang of backstitches, you’ll be able to make any of these patterns easily," Hastings said.

Perfect for fans of drag and drag queens, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and allies, Cross-Stitch Like a Queen is a celebration of the mantra "love is love." Go forth and stitch!
