While these cross-stitched patterns by WeeLittleStitches aren't particularly sexy, there's no denying their uniqueness when it comes to their geeky designs. WeeLittleStitches of the popular site Etsy has done what few people have been able to do, take a lost form of art and turn it into something wonderful.

Rest assured, the cross-stitched patterns in this series represent only a small sample of those available on WeeLittleStitches' company page. From Ghostbusters to The Princess Bride, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Doctor Who, the icons in WeeLittleStitches' art are definitely childhood favorites. Part of their appeal is their retro, pixel-like design, which bares a striking resemblance to the graphics of the Atari 2600. A large part of the fun behind these pieces is seeing many of today's biggest pop culture icons rendered in this way. Stats for Embroidered Icon Art Trending: Older & Buzzing
