Fabric? Must. Stash.

Fabric? Must. Stash.

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is beginner friendly! Even if this is your very first cross-stitch! It only includes full cross stitches, back stitches and four French knots. I have included basic cross-stitch instructions.

Pattern Description:

This is a cross stitch e-pattern in PDF format perfect for all fabric lovers. It celebrates the love of fabric in a different stitching medium, and would be an excellent decoration for a sewing room or fabric storage area.

The pattern began as a drawing and a joke and was then created with a professional cross-stitching program. It is a 5-page PDF file. The pattern uses only full stitches for the mustache, backstitching for the words, and four French knots. It stitches up quite quickly and easily, and so is great for both beginners and experienced stitchers!


Design Size - approximately 3 inches square [size will vary with fabric choice]
Suggested Fabric - 14 ct. aida
Stitches Required - Full cross stitches, backstitches, French knots
Colors Required - 2 DMC floss colors listed, with infinite possibilities for personalization

If you have any questions about the pattern please ask before ordering, as no refunds can be given once the pattern is emailed.

Thank you so much and enjoy some cheeky mustache humor!
