Over the past few years, there’s been a resurgence of interest in needlework. What was once associated with your grandmother’s house is now marching into contemporary homes. Cross-stitch, one of the oldest forms of needlework, used to be thought of as exclusively for alphabet samplers or decorating doilies. However, we’ve run across some hilarious stitchers that are taking cues from pop culture, resulting in thoroughly modern pieces that might make grandma blush.
Whether inspired by memes, television, or politics, there’s something about an elegant craft juxtaposed with sassy phrases that make us smile. Best of all, most have patterns available for download, which means you can get your stitch on and show your sense of humor at the same time.
This isn’t your grandma’s embroidery. Scroll down for funny cross stitch that’ll make you laugh—then sew some of them yourself!
