Bob Ross in Cross Stitch


Chellum, a member of Crafster from Ottawa, recently posted this little cross stitch pattern of our favorite public television painter,Bob Ross. Bob Ross was an American painter, art instructor, and television host. He was best known as the creator and host of “The Joy of Painting,” an instructional television program that aired from 1983 to 1994 on PBS in the United States, and also aired in Canada, Mexico and Europe. Ross was well known for the catchphrases he used while painting such as “happy little trees.”

Chellum bought the pattern from Hug Sandwich, of Salt Lake City, on Etsy, for just $5.

Hug Sandwich has a variety of pop culture patterns available, and does custom cross stitch patterns as well.

But for the broke cross stitcher out there, check out Free Cross Stitch Patterns. The site has an index of free printable cross stitch patterns.

I love finding free pattern downloads, and this one is especially cute with it’s little Darth Vader. ¬†Username Avozika has this design as well as a few others (including a rather pithy Chuck Norris design) for download on her Instructables page.

Creative Cross-Stitch, Nerdy Needlework

While I haven’t really done any cross-stitching since about the age of eight, I can appreciate it as an arts-and-craft-form. Done properly and on an interesting subject, and it can be pretty damn impressive. (My mother once re-created this iconic La Dame aux Camelias Mucha poster with spectacular results. Just wish I had a photo to show you!) Anyway, tangent aside, I have found some awesome cross-stitch patterns on The Crafty Companion’s Etsy shop. She creates and sells patterns on an array of geek themes from Doctor Who to Game of Thrones, Firefly to Harry Potter. Very cute, not to mention reasonably priced. ($3 per pattern seems like a good deal to me!)
