    I really NEED this tshirt….Please, please pick me. Would you believe that my 70+ year old mom found your website and turned me on this place? My favorite is the Steampunk Alphabet. As of right now, I have done 4 Messenger bags with “monograms” on them. But really, my Bernina 830E is just dying to put some crystals on the Tshirt…I realllyyyyy want it bad…

    It was a hard choice all your lab projects are awesome but if I have to choose the giving bunnies project for sure…wonderful idea

    Dear UT: Happy Birthday you youngster! I’m so glad I found you because now I can make something that is COOL! by my teen grandson’s definitions. I can count on you for the UNusual and UNexpected.
    Gotta say though, the Natura Gown is way over the top and serious props to the person sewing that! We are not worthy (bowing low).

    ps: Thanks for the freebies from time to time–again YOU are the best!

    I truly love seeing all the various possibilities however the Celestial Quilt is truly mind blowing. I have met fellow crafters in a store and ask if they have seen the awesome “Celestial Quilt” from UT. If they say no, I whip out my iPhone and show them. True story.
    Thanks for all the great designs UT!!

    The giving Bunnies, of course!! It was so much fun seeing them taking over the world – and I had lots of fun translating the tag into German 😉 Wish I’ll find the One bunny one day that’s meant for me…

  33. 33
    Sue Watson says:

    I love all of the designs, but I have to say the Evenfall lace was my favorite. So beautiful and I am so happy it is offered for the 4×4 size hoop. I have many ideas of what I can make with these patterns.

    Evenfall Lace! Such a gorgeous collection!

    The Crane Wife! Seeing embroidery on a larger, fine art scale has given me inspiration for my own work this year as a senior at art school.

  36. 36
    Liz W says:

    It’s a toss up for me between the charmed tee and the winged drape cardigan. I love these simple ideas and the almost instant gratification you can get making them! Thanks for all the fun projects!

    Missy K. says:

    Wow, this is a tough decision. I love the lab and all their creations. It is amazing, what they have been able to do with the bunnies all over the world. And I love the Steampunk Alphabet sampler. But above all my favorite is the celestial quilt. Since I have seen that, I have been collecting fabric to make one of my own (or a reasonable facsimile). Thank you so much lab and Happy Birthday UT!

  67. 67
    Theresa says:

    the Mendhika Chair was an awesome post but i think the Giving Bunnies were the best… to give someone, to lift the spirit in an anonymous way is the top of my list

  68. 68
    Keri says:

    It is really hard to choose. All the lab projects are so innovative. I would have to say the giving bunnies are my absolute favorite. Who doesn’t love random acts of bunnies?

  69. 69
    Karen says:

    Tough choice.. Giving bunnies…which are adorable!!!! or Evenfall Lace which is awesome!!!!!!!!!!
    Either way the designs are wonderful. Happy Birthday!!!

    Nancy says:

    My absolute favorite is the Evenfall Lace project. It is so beautiful and mysterious!. I imagine myself wearing this! Yes, I have fantasies! But alas I’m too old. I hope one day, my granddaughter will want it!

  71. 71
    Tina says:

    Well, I do like all things UT, for sake of this contest…I will say the BUNNIES! I do love those bunnies and the whole idea behind them! So fun! HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!!

    Patti V says:

    Hands down, the Baroque Punk Blazer is the best! I love the patchwork style of the jacket and the way one side is longer in the front, very edgy. The Baroque designs are really showcased in this Lab project.

    Phyllis says:

    The steam punk coat is my favorite, though I also love the bunnies.

  85. 85
    Nicole says:

    It’s a tough choice, but I’m going with the Mendhika Chair. I’ve been itching to refinish an antique chair for some time now, and these ombre, light-stitiching designs are perfect for a pop of colour and added dimension, without overwhelming the lines inherent to the chair. Such a great combination!

  86. 86
    Roberta says:

    The Mendhika chair because you don’t see that many home dec projects with machine embroidery other than pillows.

  87. 87
    Amanda says:

    Definitely the Giving Bunny! I’m hoping to make some with my craft group this summer!

    Evenfall. Its the reason I got a machine = and thanks for making it 4X4 friendly so I could get an affordable machine!

    Rebecca says:

    The Giving Bunnies is my favorit e because not only did it have awesome, cute and different embroidery; it encouraged (and still does!) generosity and kindness, which might not create something different, but certainly MAKES a difference!

  105. 105
    Enis says:

    Giving Bunnies is so awesome and the best idea yet! But I do also love the Steampunk Jacket.

  109. 109
    Lholy-chan says:

    It has to be the Clockwork Natura gown of course! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it, that’s how I discovered Urban Threads. I think it was through a post somewhere, maybe BurdaStyle? I also like the Celestial Quilt and your last project (with the steampunk type) very much. Thank you for the giveaway!

  110. 110
    Anett says:

    It is so hard to decide, but I have to (my 9 years daughter is absolutely inloved in your work, “Mom look, this is so cool…!”. Although I belong to a geek world, I think she will not follow me. She discovered a whole new world of creativity :). Baroque punk collection (and the blazer) is my first choice (we made a cute punk skirt with 2 swallows in different sizes for mom and daughter :). So, if you have a t-shirt in XS size…
    Anyway, happy, happy, happy B, and thank you for cherishing diversity.

    Sherry S. (SpiderStitches) says:

    So many beautiful things that touch my heart as a favorite… Oh My!

    The Giving Bunny lets me take part in helping to stitch the world in Happiness so it’s way up there on my list, and well, when I first saw the Celestial Quilt ~ Sleeping Under The Stars, it took away that breath I was holding to blow out my 62 birthday candles. OH THE BEAUTY of it, I was like “Get OUT of my way already so I can run to the laptop and order those designs as I surely must have them as a special present to myself. Then, I mozied around and spied that Baroque Punk Blazer ~ The Beauty of Stitches — well, hell “beauty of stitches” was a sincere understatement (oh! and ya gotta love a man in a kilt). Ok, ok… I’ve got to settle down here with a VOTE so I’m going to say:

    THE CELESTIAL QUILT (Baroque Punk Blazer as a 1st place tie)

    … see I still can’t make up my mind.

  116. 116
    Elizabeth Morgan says:

    The celestial Quilt – so much depth to the finished quilt, without looking all cute and cottage-y. Love it

    Zebrina says:

    Medhika Chair (although everything is amazing) this subtle change made huge impact and was beautiful, soft and stood out!

  120. 120

    How to choose with so many favorites??? Hmmm, I have to say Even Fall is my favorite. Not only is it unique but versatile as well. I love YOUR freestanding lace best of all! An hope to see some ear rings in the near future! You all have helped me stretch my embroidery way beyond what I could have thought on my own. Thank you! and Happy Birthday, Urban Threads! Blessings and Abundance!
