Krampus Cross Stitch

Posted in christmas, craft, krampus with tags , , on December 20, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Although I’m featuring a Krampus design, Bombastitch has an array of clever cross stitch patterns.

I’d love this fellow to grace my walls. He’s very classy.

I meant to post this web series in my Halloween countdown (but am always swamped with dozen of links I can’t get to that time of year). Luckily, Victorian Cutout Theater has a special episode for the holidays.

Don’t let the voices tell you what to do this Christmas.

See more episodes here.
