When you think of cross stitch, you probably think of Bible quotes hanging off the walls at your grandma's house. And hey, there's nothing wrong with that, but for those of you who want a little more from your embroidery, check out these badass examples compiled by Bored Panda. From crude comedy and crappy puns to gangster-themed patterns and good old fashioned insults, this awesome collection of alternative cross stitch will make you smile, although your grandma might not appreciate it quite so much. Would you hang any of these on your wall? Let us know in the comments below! (Cover Image: stu_spivack)
