Charlie the Unicorn cross stitch, colorful in a rectangular ornate 2x3 tabletop frame, natural wood embroidery hoop, or mini secondhand frame.


If you're in search of candy mountain, you might be better off with one or three of these cross stitches instead. They're small, cute, and include important warnings for the potential candy mountain visitor. Look into the deranged eye of that unicorn offering a "land of sweets and joy...and joyness," and shudder! Never wake up missing a kidney again!*

*If you are already missing a kidney, these cross stitches will not restore your missing kidney. The best they can do is help to prevent the other one from going missing.

A customer requested these in color, and I happily complied (having narrowly avoided a trip to Candy Mountain myself a few years back). They have since become a very popular item, both online and in person, so I thought I'd better make it a threesome (depicting one unicorn, two unicorns, and three unicorns).


This is one completed cross stitch of a pink unicorn with a weird dilated eye and the word "Joyness."

This listing is for one "Joyness" stitch ONLY (first three photos) and does not include the other colorful Charlie stitches (last two photos). Check out the "links" section of this listing for all 3 for a slightly discounted price!

*FRAME: There are several framing options, with "Joyness" pictured here in a 2x3" hot pink tabletop frame (while supplies last) and in a natural wood embroidery hoop. If you like, you are welcome to request this stitch in another of the frames from the cache of secondhand ones I've gathered from local Goodwills. Indicate your preference by convo'ing me or putting a note in the purchase order.

*GIFT WRAP: As with all my small items, if this is a gift, let me know via convo or in the purchase order and I'll wrap them in plain paper and include a small notecard for your "to" and "from." If it's going directly to the recipient, let me know what you'd like me to write on the notecard, and make sure I have the correct shipping address!

*SHIP: This will ship via USPS first class with delivery confirmation, or international first class. Charlie stitches will ship in about a week unless indicated otherwise by convo or in my shop announcement or shop banner, and almost always sooner. Let me know if you need them by a certain date via convo and I'll see what I can do!

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! :)
