Shakespeare Cross-Stitch Patterns

Shakespeare has been in the news a lot recently. The 400th anniversary of his death in 1616 was commemorated on April 23. I was thinking about doing a roundup of spring patterns this week, but then I thought it would be more fun to find cross-stitch patterns inspired by Shakespeare instead.

I have some ideas for my own Shakespearean cross-stitch patterns, but there are some good ones already available. Here are just a few:

Finally, I also have to mention “Shakespearean Fantasy” by James Christensen for Heaven and Earth Designs–an astounding work of art, and the tiny photo on the website does not do it justice.

I love the variety in these patterns. They are each so different from each other yet they are inspired by the same writer. Did I miss any other favorite Shakespearean cross-stitch patterns?

  1. Beautiful. Also, Mirabilia’s Mystery “Wherefore Art Thou”. It is a cross stitch of Juliet.

    I have never even thought of looking for Shakespearean cross stitch! I am a longtime fan of the Bard and will have to look for the perfect piece for an antique frame I just bought.
