Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace. So without further ado, I welcome you to…


Hi everyone! This week I wanted to take a second look at movies in stitch – a sequel, if you will. Let’s get this thing rolling!

Penny Nickels made these pillows featuring Klaus Kinski and Werner Herzog. She pointed me in the direction of this clip from the movie My Best Fiend, Herzog’s documentary about their relationship. Now, even though Kinski is no longer with us, they can be together forever in pillow form!

Ok, I know I am not alone here – I know there are more of you out there that love the movie Clue. At the very least, there is weird_lover_wilde on Craftster, who made this embroidery referencing this wonderful scene.

This lovely stitch was made by effingboring. Sound familiar? If not, check out this scene from the awesome Blazing Saddles.

Oh, Breakfast Club. You taught the children of the 80’s lessons about valuing people for what they are. You also taught us this new term for nerd! Thanks, Spamberly, for stitching it up!

This line from the movie They Live has been named one of the best movie lines ever – mostly by people posting clips of the scene on youtube, granted, but still. :) Fiberartsy did an awesome job interpreting the seriousness of the statement in stitch. Check out the scene for yourself here.

DanielleH stitched this quote from The Jerk that also doubles as sound advice for us all. Haven’t seen The Jerk? Check it out here and I bet you’ll want to!

Who doesn’t love Pee Wee’s Big Adventure? It’s one of my favorite movies, and if you haven’t seen it, here’s a taste. This portrait of Pee Wee Herman from GigglyMama is not only awesome, it also acted as payment for her amazing embroidery themed tattoo – read about that here.

I hope you all enjoyed this second look at movies in stitch. See you next time!
