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.

Orangutan Dreams Cross Stitch Pattern
The Orangutan Dreams cross stitch pattern was originally designed for the Green issue (Issue 4) of XStitch Magazine. Green symbolizes lush foliage, life, and new beginnings. It’s ironic that in some of the lushest parts of the world, many species (like the beautiful and intelligent orangutan) are critically endangered. Protecting our green spaces, whether that’s in cities or in tropical jungles, is more important than ever. This baby orangutan symbolizes the hopes and dreams of all the creatures we share our planet with, that we will do what’s necessary to protect them.
