There are certain motifs that stitchers use time and again: Gardens, houses, cats, mermaids, hearts, alphabets And certain holidays, too — Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day are rich sources of inspiration. But a little browsing finds that there are some much more unusual designs ideas around!
The first pattern comes from an Etsy seller called Nerdy Little Stitcher. http://www.etsy.com/shop/nerdylittlestitcher?ref=seller_info
It’s heart rhythms from an EKG test. Next to it is an example of Tatoo designs that are popping up in needlework, at Gecky Rouge: http://www.etsy.com/shop/GeckoRouge
Fans of Curb Your Enthusiasm can stitch Larry David’s face, from Bombastitch: http://www.etsy.com/shop/bombastitch?ref=seller_info
Or if it’s Lady Gaga you follow, Kanitted has her:
And finally, if you think these are weird, how about this chart of microbes for STD’s! The Etsy seller is Alicia Watkins: http://www.etsy.com/shop/aliciawatkins?ref=seller_info
She also sells charts with zombie, Star Trek and robot motifs.
