Craig Ferguson Ass Mode Cross Stitch Pattern

This Craig Ferguson Ass Mode cross stitch pattern is now available in my Etsy shop!craig ferguson ass mode cross stitch pattern

This pattern comes from the intros to his Tweetmail (Tweets and emails) segment. This video shows the first jingle from the Twitter era, and it introduced us to “Ass Möde.”

“Ass Möde” must have hit someone’s funny bone as they carried the phrase over into every other intro. The jingles’ themes range from The Beatles and Bollywood to David Bowie and Japanese monster movies to 70’s glam rock and 80’s hair bands, but “Ass Möde” is always there.

Other than the original intro above, my favorite is the dance version in this next video (skip ahead to 1:38).

This pattern is perfect for all hobos and fans of Craig Ferguson and the Late Late Show, especially his Robot Skeleton Army. It’s great for beginners (and what better time to pick up a new craft?) and more experienced stitchers alike.

Craig will be leaving the Late Late Show, but Ass Möde lives on!

Craig Ferguson Cross Stitch Pattern “Ring the Bell…”

This Craig Ferguson cross stitch pattern is now available in my Etsy shop!

craig ferguson cross stitch pattern ring the bell one time we speak german etc.

This list is of how Craig and Geoff speak when Craig rings his desk bell. It goes like this:

  • One ring: We speak German
  • Two rings: Still German
  • Three rings: Dracula
  • Four rings: Italian Bill Clinton (“what’s-a-come-and-a-go”)
  • Five rings: Room service (usually Jerry from room service calls Craig)

If this sounds like lunacy, it is! It’s all a part of why Craig’s show is so uniquely funny.

For those of you unfamiliar with the gentleman, Craig Ferguson is the host of the Late Late Show, on after David Letterman’s (soon to be Stephen Colbert’s) Late Show on CBS. He is FUNNY, and most of what he says is improvised. Like he says, it’s not like any other late night talk show!

The border pattern is made up of the German flag (twice, of course), the Transylvanian flag, the Italian flag, and the international signal flag for H – Hotel!

This pattern is perfect for all hobos and fans of Craig Ferguson and the Late Late Show, especially his Robot Skeleton Army.

I also have two other Craig Ferguson cross stitch patterns available: “The Bastards Don’t Own Me,” and “I think I just earned a merit badge in FIERCE!” They’re fun – check ’em out!

Craig Ferguson Cross Stitch Pattern FIERCE!

This Craig Ferguson cross stitch pattern is now available in my Etsy shop!

craig ferguson cross stitch pattern I think I just earned a merit badge in fierce!

This pattern is based on a funny quote from him when he was being “fabulous” for a minute. He must have just given someone a verbal bitchslap, or was talking about his wardrobe (well, he does have outstanding socks). I just wish I remembered the moment more clearly!

I do remember laughing my butt off at this line, and fortunately I wrote down the quote right then and there. “I think I just earned a merit badge in FIERCE!” is something you can be sure you won’t hear from any other talk show host.

If you’re a CraigyFerg fan, you might also be interested in my other pattern based on a quote from him: “The bastards don’t own me.” Check it out, fellow hobos, ’cause “it’s a great day for America!”

Craig Ferguson is the host of the Late Late Show, on after David Letterman’s Late Show on CBS. He is FUNNY. He doesn’t use a script – most of what he says is made up on the fly from some bullet points. His co-host is a gay robot skeleton named Geoff Peterson, and another character is Secretariat, two interns in a horse suit. If it sounds odd, it sure is – you really need to see the rampant silliness for yourself.

He has a big rebellious streak (his past includes drumming in punk bands and blackout drunkenness – he has now been sober for over 20 years). In being rebellious, he has some tattoos, one being the “Join, or Die” snake drawing by Benjamin Franklin (you can often see the tail of it on his right wrist). One night when asked why he has tattoos, he responded “Just to remind myself that the bastards don’t own me.”

As soon as he said it, I wrote it down. I think it’s a great sentiment for cubicle dwellers, employees of large companies… anyone working hard for a living and isn’t the boss. It’s for everyone who wants a good reminder that when that paycheck gets cashed, you call it even.

I often visualize someone with this cross stitch in a frame on their desk. A coworker happens to see it. At first glance it looks like a sweet little cross stitch sampler. But then they have to wonder if they really read it correctly. Yes, they damn well did!

Thanks to Craig Ferguson for the inspiration for this cross stitch pattern. I hope he and his team keep up the good work for many more years. Stay tuned for more Craig Ferguson cross stitch projects in the future!
