Embroidered Chic Halloween Pillow from Quick Pics - The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

In theme with this week’s Halloween in July celebrations, I thought I’d pick something spooky to feature on this edition of Quick Pics. Quilted Thimble Cottage on flickr stitched up these simple but chic Halloween pillows with this elegant bat design. Honestly, I think it’s pretty enough to be out all year. Then again, I’d make every day Halloween if I could. Still, this isn’t a bad time to start thinking about decor and especially stitched costumes. It’s just a few short months away!

Michelle on facebook stitched these lovely letter pillows using the Letter Perfect collection to dress up her home. I love how different and colorful each of these pillows are. These would make great gifts for a housewarming or as a special touch for each person in your family. Plus it’s easy to add designs like this on ready made pillow cases. A fast and fun decor project!

Embroidered Christmas Bag from Quick Pics - The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

We’re celebrating a special week of Christmas in July here at Urban Threads, to get your mind churning about those piles of handmade gifts you plan to make! UT stitcher Maria Migal on Flickr knows just what she wants for Christmas, and just how to stitch it. She used this simple yet chic text design to make this lux bag perfect for the upcoming season. Christmas projects don’t have to be over the top. Sometimes something simple makes just the statement you’re looking for.

Soft embroidered wings from Quick Pics- The best and brightest ideas from Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr and instagram and more.

It’s not entirely revealed what this costume from instagram user giusynuno is going to be, only that it has something to do with unicorns and being amazingly awesome. Those wings are perfection with all those flourishy touches on the bodice. How different they look with that soft color palette! She also has an ice queen dress in the works that I can’t wait to get a better peek at. Really lovely work.

Embroidered Sweets Banner, from Quick Pics - The best and brightest ideas from Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr and instagram and more.

When Julianne got married recently she used her mad crafty skills to make all kinds of things for her wedding. Her daughter wore a headband made with lace, she used the Mr & Mrs bunting for the top table, stitched lots of lace lanterns, and finally, made this super cute bunting  for the sweet table using the Cirque Alphabet. She said she accidentally bought the wrong size W, but I thought it was super cute and totally intentional. What a crafty wedding!

Flickr user Amy Herrington made this upholstery vinyl and faux leather purse fit for a queen! Or a queen bee. Either way. She used the regal little mini bee to create an embroidered fabric effect for the purse. Très chic!
