This is hilarious! 
My grandmother would love it, and I may have to use the idea for her Christmas present.
Great job!

I really like this quote and decided to stitch it up out of boredom today.

I like the way the words came out, but I can't decide whether to add two more flowers (one on either end of the vine) at the bottom, or just take out those three stitches on either end.  Any ideas?

Once again, thank you all for the comments! I really appreciate it them!

hahahahaha, awesome!  I'm off to cross stitch some Lenny Bruce now Wink

Can I ask where you found those fonts?  I'm thinking about cross stitching a Beatles lyric (Sun Sun Sun Here it comes) in the flower font...  less ironic but what the hell hehe Smiley

I found almost all of the fonts I used by searching Picasa.  If you translate "cross stitch alphabet" or some variation of that to Portuguese or Spanish and search for it, you get a lot of results.

Thank you all for such nice comments!!

I really had a lot of fun making these.  The best part was picking out the colors and fonts to use.

I LOOOOVE these! Awesome job and they make me laugh! Please tell me you're going to put them all on the same wall!

Haha yes!  They will all be in a grouping on one wall.
I'm hoping to be able to thrift some frames to use.  Some of them, like "Motherfucker" are a couple feet long, so it may take a while to find them all a suitable frame.

And thank you both for the comments Smiley

George Carlin has always been one of my favorite comedians and I decided to pay tribute to him in one of my favorite crafty mediums - Cross stitch.

These are Mr. Carlin's famous "7 Dirty Words"

I've been working on these off and on over the last couple of months and am more than relieved to finally be done.  Now I have to start searching for frames.

Thank you all for the comments!

You did a great job!!  What yarn did you use?

I wanted to make similar ones but just didn't have the time.  The pattern I saw was in the Nov/Dec issue of Crochet today.

Aiming to make them during the year, to be ready for next Christmas!



I used Caron Simply Soft yarn

That Crochet Today pattern is the one I saw a picture of on Flickr.  The opposite color seams helped me figure out how to hook them together.  I like the look of the hexagon pattern I used a lot more than that one, though.

These are amazing!

Any chance of a more in-depth tutorial?

I used the hexagon, knotting the ends of each new color and weaving them in, and the joining as you go instructions from this page:  http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/hexagon-howto.html

As for how to put it together, I just looked at a picture of something similar on Flickr where they had used a different color to sew their hexagons together, making it easier for me to see where I had to seam.  Once they were all together I single crocheted around the top, starting at the left-hand peak.  I chained 15 for the loop and single crocheted in each chain.

Thank you Smiley

They really didn't take long at all.  I made them all working off and on over two weekends.
Each stocking takes 17 hexagons and I did each stocking assembly line - all the middles, all the second rows, etc.  I did the join as you go method, too, which is SO much easier than having to sew them all together at the end, and there are way less ends to weave in.

I decided to make everyone stockings this year since stocking stuffers were more within my budget than big ticket items.  I made six total, two of each color combination, and I'm really happy with how they turned out.
