This text art piece cynically explains the saying, 'make your bed' which is used to refer to refer to someone who settles down in a relationship. It is typically used towards women who lower their standards and accept the life they have chosen. The instructional format and graphics sewn onto blue fabric are based off of blueprint representations as guide to women of how their life will be formed. This piece critiques notions of judging women's personal decisions and stereotypes of women's behaviours and expectations in relationships.
