As usual, you might be forgiven of late for being distracted by all the adorable pups, horses and kitties that took over the flickr pool for awhile, but there are some things that really ought not be missed.
Let’s see just a few of what’s popped up of late…
You can never go wrong with kicking things off with a little steampunk style, right? And flourishes got it just right.
Looking to add a little cool to your wardrobe? Yes indeed. Julieann20 did just that by splitting the seam and adding some embroidered coolness. Where have we seen something like this before?
Oh yeah, when we got all glammed up in Stitches Magazine, thought I’m pretty sure Julie Ann did it first. I’m now thinking I have a lot of very boring pairs of jeans. Thanks for the inspiration, Julie Ann!
OMG, could you just die of cuteness?
I don’t cook, but I would try my darndest if I had this little number, just to have a viable excuse to wear it around. Creations by Dawn decided to redo her whole kitchen in a cherry theme, and this is the little apron to match. Oh, the red lace is killing me! I love it.
And this? Too adorable. Way to be commanding, snarky and cute all in one go. Not easy to pull off in one pillow.
Happy Monster pillows are happy!
As was scandinaviangrrl when she bought a new IKEA chair for sewing. I think these little monsters are just the thing to liven it up.
Noordermeer1 has accomplished what many have tried and failed at before… stitching for a teenage guy! She has pulled it off masterfully. Taylor looks pretty slick with his new bag.
More steampunk! And what steampunk it is… dj_ghostuk is at it again, this time making an amazing stitched gear bodice for this seriously sweet Tin Girl costume.
I’m starting to think I should just have a whole section for amazing embroidered steampunk costumes. Please tell me you’re entering this into our costume contest, right dj_ghostuk?
Speaking of adorable costumes…
Ok, so little Fearghus doesn’t look super thrilled to be modeling that slick top hat, but I think he looks fabulous. That blue that Lemon Tree Tales picked out really brings out his uh… eyes, don’t you think?
As usual, to check out all the stitchy goodness, head on over to our flickr group for and eyeful, and a healthy dose of inspiration!
