Little man with a gun, completed cross stitch in 3" embroidery hoop

---The Story---

Who else could transform "The Farmer and the Dell" into a bad@$$ announcement that you'd better run? I can't think of anyone.

The scar, the shotgun, the quippy one-liners, the ruthlessly capitalist heart of gold...without becoming a parody of hypermasculinity (Vin Diesel? Segal?), and without becoming a gay stereotype, this dude manages to epitomize and escape everything that makes his story worthy of being called "modern day Shakespeare."

And now you can have him, super-cute-ified and parodied (so as not to freak out your grandma -- Omar loves grandmas), hanging on your living room wall.

---The Deets---

This 3" round stitch features the text of your choice -- "Oh, indeed," "Omar Comin'," "The cheese stands alone" or the classic "You come at the king, you best not miss" with a tiny pixelated cross stitch of a man with a shotgun, wearing a trenchcoat and bulletproof vest. The example pictured is stitched in black thread (text) on ivory aida cloth.

Select the text you'd like as you make your purchase, either by using the drop-down list at checkout, or (if you're on a mobile device and can't see the drop-down), by making note of your preference in the purchase order notes. ***If you don't choose for yourself, I'll surprise you!***

*FRAME: This will come completed and framed in a 3" natural wood round embroidery hoop unless you request otherwise. The pattern was designed for a round frame, but if you'd rather have it in a square or rectangular secondhand frame from my cache, let me know in the purchase order notes! (I'm completely out of the black square ornate frames.)

*SHIP: This stitch will ship as pictured to anywhere in the world.

It will be wrapped carefully in newspaper and sent on its way via USPS first class with delivery confirmation or international first class within two weeks of your order, unless specified otherwise by convo or in my shop policies, shop banner or announcements (below the shop banner) -- and almost always sooner. Let me know if you're on a deadline, and I'll see what I can do!

As usual, multiple item orders take more time, so especially let me know if you have a "receive by" date, especially if you're ordering more than one thing from the shop. :)

*GIFT WRAP: Let me know if you're giving wire-inspired awesomeness as a gift, and I'll wrap it up in plain paper and include a notecard for you to write in. Or let me know if it's going straight to the recipient (be sure to include the correct address in your order!) and what message you'd like to include and I'll write it in on your behalf before popping it in the mail.

My designs are copyright me, so please don't copy 'em; this design is for sale in my shop already, so no excuses! You can buy it for only a few bucks. ; )

*This pattern, as with all my patterns, is in some ways inspired by diverse popular cultural elements, but it is not affiliated or associated in any way with a particular song, show, film, etc. and it should not be considered or construed as such. It is intended as a fair use parody of any inspirational material.

Frequently asked questions about aliciawatkins

I love to do custom work during the non-holiday months! I try to work on one custom project at a time so that I can give each project my full customizing attention; as a result, a significant lead time on deadlines for receiving your custom order is very much appreciated.

If possible, try to contact me at least a month in advance of a deadline for receiving a 5x7 custom cross stitch. (That said, if you're in a pinch and you know I'm the stitcher for the job, convo me anyway! If I happen to be in between custom orders, I can often get things out in a much shorter time, and like I said, I love working with customers on personalized stitchery.)
Most of my small finished cross stitches have an option for gift wrapping.

If you don't see a drop-down list as you purchase a small hooped or framed cross stitch (smaller than 4x6), but you would like your item to be wrapped in plain paper (with a small notecard for your message included), request gift wrap as you check out in the "notes to seller"!

If you're having your gift sent directly to the recipient, please double-check the address it's going to before you finish checking out, and let me know what you'd like me to write in the notecard to your recipient! :)
Mini kits are available for wholesale ordering at any time; contact me for details on which kits I have available with shelf-ready labeling, and for pricing details!

I also offer a selection of finished cross stitch available for wholesale or certain consignment situations, for stores that feel my work would be a good fit. Contact me if you're interested in carrying my work in your store, and we'll talk about what I've done in the past and what you're looking for! :)
I believe in using secondhand frames because it's eco-friendly, supports my local thrift shops, and allows me to frame your items, if you'd like that, at very low cost.

Because they are unique and unapproved by you, I don't pass on the cost of the secondhand frames to you, except for the cost of shipping (usually about a $2 difference).

When you order an item from me, rest assured that you are only paying for the stitchwork, and you may treat the frame as a "suggestion" -- if you don't like it, give the frame away! Your 4x6 or larger cross stitch will come with a mounting board that will allow you to easily pop it out of the "suggested" frame I've sent it in and into any same-sized frame of your choice.
I can't send you a photo of your options for 4x6 or larger frames; I have too many frames and a too quickly rotating stock for that. However, you're welcome to let me know your preferences in color and material (i.e. wood, metal, plastic) and I'll do what I can to accommodate your wishes.

If you receive your stitchwork and you HATE the frame I chose from my cache of secondhand frames, never fear! The stitching for a 4x6 or larger frame will be mounted on a board that you can simply pop out of the secondhand frame you received, and pop INto a frame you choose from a local store, another Etsy seller, or anywhere you find perfect frames.

Because the secondhand frames I send are free, I cannot offer replacements or frame-related refunds.
Google and Youtube are your BFFs in learning to cross stitch, but if you've purchased a kit or pattern from my shop, I can also offer you a Basic Cross Stitch instruction booklet via email. Just let me know you'd like one, and I'll send it along! :)
