Be the Villain Cross Stitch Pattern
Feel like getting a little stabby? Maybe the “Be The Villain” cross stitch pattern can help you out… 😂 When people ask me what I do, I often say, “I help people relax by stabbing something 20,000 times.” This dark humour reminded me of many villains, and I was inspired by the cool elegance of Bond villains in particular. Featured in Issue 5 of XStitch Magazine, “Be the Villain” represents how our outer well-groomed appearance can mask our darker side.
Caffeine Cross Stitch Pattern
Are you someone who cannot fathom starting their day without the Elixir of the Gods, caffeine? If your morning cuppa is more important to you than making sure your first born has both shoes on before he leaves for school, the Caffeine cross stitch pattern will make the perfect “statement” in your home. It will also ensure that those who try to get between you and your fifth cup of the day reconsider their life decisions…. 😂 This pattern is also perfect for the office, and also comes with the option of substituting the word caffeine with “wine.” You know, just in case a fruit-based beverage is more your jam…😉
This pattern is also available in the full Adulting 101 Collection set.
Awa an Bile Cross Stitch Pattern
When you’re having one of “those” days, maybe a pretty bouquet of flowers is what you need… 😂 The lovely Jacobean-era inspired Awa an Bile cross stitch pattern features brilliant Japan Threads in both gold and copper, as well as pretty gold beads. The text “Awa an bile yer heid” is Scottish Doric, and translates to “Go away and boil your head”, aka “get lost.” If the text isn’t to your taste, you can purchase the custom pattern option and choose a word of your choice to be drafted into the pattern (as shown in the mockup image with the word “Peace”). Or, you could stitch the pattern without the text, there’s an example photograph showing what it looks like without text.

The text, “Awa an raffle yersel”, is a Scottish insult translating to a milder form of “piss off”… 😂 Of course, you’re free to come up with your own translation for those who may be “sensitive” to the real meaning, such as “Entertain yourself.” If the text isn’t to your taste, you can purchase the custom pattern option and choose a word of your choice to be drafted into the pattern (as shown in the mockup image with the word “Bloom”). Or, you could stitch the pattern without the text, there’s an example photograph showing what it looks like without text. And if you’re not sure what Japan Threads are, you can check out this free video tutorial. 😊
Yer Arse and Parsley Cross Stitch Pattern
Elegant, sophisticated, snarky… what could be better than that. The gorgeous spring-like mint and peach tones in the Yer Arse and Parsley cross stitch pattern belies the meaning of the text, which is a Scottish insult translating roughly to, “You’re talking shit.” The phrase can be used to make your own exclamations of frustration more colourful, or for those more sensitive you could say it’s an inspirational phrase promoting a healthy whole diet … 😂 This Jacobean-era inspired cross stitch pattern also features sparkling Japan Threads in a glorious copper, as well as shiny copper beads. If the text isn’t to your taste, you can purchase the custom pattern option and choose a word of your choice to be drafted into the pattern (as shown in the mockup image with the word “Love”).
