They are the pin up girl for the season! Today we celebrate our ambassadors of Halloween with witch themed cross stitch patterns that range from whimsical to a bit more traditional. Sit around the fire and enjoy!

Casting Spells and Taking Names
Decorating for Halloween can range from fun to frightening. If you are looking for a unique door hanger or wreath why not stitch up this pattern from Waxing Moon Designs. Wouldn't this look great in the middle of a wreath or as part of a wall hanging? If you do not want to hang it on the front door or a wall, why not make it part of a quilt or pillow. This would also be fun for an office or storefront. You can find the pattern at 123 Cross Stitch along with all of the supplies you need for... the project. Look for this pattern and others from Waxing Moon Design HERE.

Something Wicked This Way Comes
"By the prickling of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes." The witch's shoe is perfect for this quote. Think of the witch walking up while humming this line. Are you scared yet? Don't be! Cross stitch designer La D Da offers up this pattern that is a mixture of primitive and whimsical styles. You can purchase the pattern HERE and read more about La D Da and their other primitive patterns on their website.

The pattern, Witch Bone, by Hinzeit, has a very voodoo New Orleans feel to it with a touch of retro tattoo art. This pattern would be a great addition to your kitchen. Stitch it up on a towel, an apron or add a border and create a sampler. Hinzeit has several other Halloween inspired cross stitch patterns. Many of them include little trinkets and beads. The Lovebits patterns are to die for and would make an incredible sampler. Check out all the patterns on their website HERE.

Witch Better Have My Candy
Sometimes we need to lighten up and have a little fun with words and that's where Clever Cross Stitch comes in and shares their pattern for "Witch Better Have My Candy". Can't you just imagine some rotten little trick or treater saying this? This pattern is inspired by all the little ghouls and goblins out there and of course a little tune by the artist Rihanna. This would be so hysterical if stitched on a trick or treat bag. Have fun stitching this and other patterns by Clever... Cross Stitch. You can find so many fun items in their Etsy store.Continue to 5 of 6 below.

The Witches Game
Primitive patterns were just made for witches. They are haunting, beautiful and while they may look simple, they are deeply complex; just like most witches. The Primitive Hare has several witch themed patterns on her website. The Witches Game cross stitch pattern allows you to create your own witch or stitch up each piece in a sampler. It is such a fun and clever idea! You can read more about it, and purchase the pattern HERE.
