As a kid I had this almost elfin concept of The Pope, he seemed so fairy tail like. Today I still have a slight fascination with the pomp & circumstance of the Catholic faith, I mean who doesn’t love delicately painted icons & waiting for the black smoke? The Pope is like the King of a border less kingdom of people who may or may not live up to all the expectations of their fellow citizens. The current Pope seems to be pretty cool, the last one kind of scared me. I dug John Paul, but this guy keeps making some pretty cool waves, I mean he publicly doesn’t want gay people to be hated! He also doesn’t use the Popemobile, but I will give him a pass on that.
The number one thing we see The Pope, do is wave, so it seemed the perfect pose to put him in for this dandy pillow pattern. If you want to get crazy you can even sew some gold beads & sequins on his awesome hat.
It has been a bit since I have made a new post, but I have updated my Weims!!! post with a few new patterns you might like, if you are into that kind of thing.
Enjoy El Papa!
P.S. I am not making fun of Catholics or The Pope, just to preempt any hate mail.
Waving Pope Pillow
Just add a border till it fits your pillow form, then make a single color for the back. I would change out the blue for whatever color might go with your decor.
Waving Pope Cross Stitch DMC
Might make a nice mountable piece.
Waving Pope Outline
Great for a textured pillow, or two toned pillow.
