Crosses, Stitches, & the Slayer

In addition to my fabric obsession, I have a major pop culture obsession and fan tendencies. Shocking, I'm sure. One such pop culture obsession is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Another obsession of mine is trying new crafts. I've admired the art of cross stitch for years, but never gave it a whirl...until I made a discovery that has since changed my life.

Yes, that would be a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Pixel People cross stitch pattern created by Wee Little Stitches.

No longer could I ignore the siren song of the thread arts. I picked up a needle, some thread, and started my own slaying...

Replete with Mr. Pointy!
This is a work in progress and so far I've completed Buffy, Angel, Willow, and Spike's coat. Next up are Xander and Giles.

I love Wee Little Stitches' patterns and feel pretty confident you will too! The patterns are so fun and celebrate so many great pop culture icons. In addition to Buffy, I've picked up The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Serenity, and others.

Wee Little Stitches are OK but there are other shops that sell great cross stitch patterns, like PixelPower, for example. I think that PixelPower even better than WLS:

- they have way more patterns (in fact, they have A LOT of patterns) and add a new pattern almost every day;
- their patterns cost less money and they have amazing sales, like 3 patterns for 10$ or 5 patterns for 15$;
- they have a Facebook group where they post a free pattern every week and giveaway some of their commercial patterns for free;
- they make custom patterns in a day or two and if you can't find your favourite movie, tv show or music band in their shop you need just ask them to make it for you, everything will be ready in a couple of days, try to do the same with WLS, you'll be waiting for ages;
- they are just super:-)

Give them some love and visit their shop: Facebook:
