Monster Bash Contest

Hot on the heels of our new Monster Factory collection, we couldn’t show you all those fun monsters we made without inviting you to make some of your own. So, without further ado, we present a brand new contest, the Monster Bash!

Once you’ve grabbed your Monster Pack, it’s on you to create your very own custom monster, in any way you like. C’mon, you know you’re dying to make one.  It can be anything, from a plushie creation, to stitching monster faces on a shirt, to creating a crazy monster bag. Any monster will do! Once your monster is complete, we want to see!

Snap a picture of your monster(s) and e-mail him to us at — either send us the photo itself, or if you’ve uploaded your pic to the Urban Embroidery flickr group, just tag it utmonster and send us a link to the photo. But either way, you MUST email us your monster to enter! Why? Well, I’ll tell you why…

Just for sharing your awesome monster creation, you automatically get a FREE $5 gift certificate to Urban Threads! Direct from us to you for taking part in our awesome monster making endeavor. (You may enter as many monsters as you like, but you only get ONE gift certificate, no matter how many monsters you create).

That’s not all … submit your monster and grab your gift certificate by the deadline of Feb. 29, 2012 at 11:59 p.m., (that’s the end of February) and your monster is entered in the contest to win the crown of King of the Monsters!

The gang here at Urban Threads will pick our ten favorite finalists, and then on Friday, March 2 we’ll post those finalists up here for everyone to vote on their favorite! Voting will last through the weekend, and we’ll announce the winner on the following Monday.

The winning monster will win a permanent feature in our shiny new lookbook for everyone to see, with the name of the crafter who made the winning monster, plus major bragging rights as the crafty creator who made the King (or Queen) of the Monsters! That’s a title not many people can claim.


Remember, the deadline to enter the contest AND to grab your $5 gift certificate is Feb. 29, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. If you submit your monster via our flickr group, be sure to email us a link to your picture so we can send your gift certificate to the correct account.


A free $5 gift certificate and the glory of the crown are all yours for the taking. Can’t wait to see your monsters!

Sharing is fun!

    Stop it. I insist. Now I have WAY too many monster face ideas squirreling around in my head, barreling past everything on my Legitimate To Do List, stomping down my More Sensible Projects, setting fire to my Priorities, and eating up my Housework Plans. Just what I need. (Now, where’s my credit card…..? Monster Pack, Monster Pack, Monster Pack…..)
