Some Unusual Needlework Ideas

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.

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:

Fans of Curb Your Enthusiasm can stitch Larry David’s face, from Bombastitch:

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:

She also sells charts with zombie, Star Trek and robot motifs.

Happy Stitching!
