When you think of cross-stitching, you probably picture prim and proper women from olden times stitching Bible verses or well-known proverbs surrounded by a bunch of flowers, right?
Well, friend, I'm pleased to tell you that there's so much more to cross-stitching these days.
As it turns out, you can stitch anything onto fabric.People have taken cross-stitching to new and hilarious levels. Here are some that are sure to leave you in stitches.
This is fine.
via: RedditWe've all seen this comic on the Internet before, right? Haven't you wished you could hang it in your house? Cross-stitch it and voilà! It's art! Hang it on your walls!
You're a shooting star.
via: RedditHm. I thought they were going a whole different direction with that one.
via: ImgurFair enough! Sometimes there's no one to blame but yourself.
Only Judge Judy can judge me.
via: ImgurIf you don't have a Judge Judy cross-stitched work of art in your home, what are you even doing with your life? This next piece of cross-stitch is great for fans of both Harry Potter and brunch!
Pretty sure this is a direct quote.
via: RedditYou know that if J.K. Rowling had included a brunch scene in the books, Hermione would absolutely have said something like this. I know I'm going to say it at my next brunch!
For the happy (and sinful) couple:
via: RedditWhat a lovely housewarming gift for the couple who's living in sin! Their lifestyle may not be right in the eyes of the lord, but that fine stitching sure is!
via: ImgurWhat's your favorite parable? Mine is the one where Jesus tells that guy it's easier for a camel to puff puff pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter Heaven.
A simple request.
via: RedditI would seriously love this one for my own home. I might change it to 8:00, though.
Is this a meme?
via: RedditIf you're looking to get into cross-stitch, I recommend recreating your favorite meme with embroidery floss. It's all kinds of good. This next one made me laugh out loud.
via: Reddit#Relatable. I'd make my own version of this, but I'm kinda tired.
This is our prayer.
via: ImgurNow I lay me down to sleep, I pray my home Godzilla keep. If he should come before I wake, I know the ground will start to quake. Amen.
Hooray for puns!
via: RedditSay what you will about these punny tea pieces. I think they're SEW cute.
This is actually true.
via: RedditLook it up! A small group of people is called "Something I can deal with as long as everyone leaves by 8:00."
I love space!
via: RedditIf you're looking for a lot of personal space, outer space is actually a pretty good option! Fair warning: This next one has some NSFW language!
I'll do it.
via: ImgurDon't believe them? They literally stabbed that piece of fabric hundreds of times. I'd take them at their word.
(This one has some salty language, too!)
via: RedditI wouldn't complain about anything in this work of art if I were you. Something tells me the person who made it doesn't care much for criticism.
A manatee of a different color!
via: RedditThere's only one thing I can say to this one: D'awwwwww!
Here's one that expresses how a lot of us are feeling:
via: RedditYou don't always need fancy, frilly words to communicate. Sometimes, a simple Dumpster fire will do.
via: ImgurOr, if you're feeling particularly motivated, go for both! Share this with a crafty friend!
