Happy Holidays!

xmas_card

Happy Holidays everyone! We’ll be back to our usual shenanigans on Friday, but first we’re off to eat too many gingerbread cookies and drink too much Bailey’s. In the mean time, you can keep yourself occupied by browsing around some fun sweater ideas on sale and plot some projects for the new year, now that the holiday madness is finally tapering off.

C’mon, you know you totally want to make your own custom dinosaur-unicorn-robot sweater. Who wouldn’t?

Quick Pic – Kittens & Megalomania

Inspiring ideas from customers!

The best and brightest chosen from images of facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

Kitten Pillow - The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

I’m not entirely sure what kittens have to do with world domination, but we’ll leave that little detail up to Ganz und Garn. Regardless, this little kitten-design-turned-adorable pillow is an idea that could potentially spread across the world. I certainly know I want one now. Plus embroidery turned pillow-plushies is a great last minute gift idea.

Not that you left any of your holiday gift making to the last minute… right?  ;)

Color Inspirations – Cherry & Tin

Go bold without losing that beautiful vintage tone with this Cherry & Tin color inspiration on your embroidery designs.

Colors mean different things throughout the seasons. This close to Christmas, this Cherry & Tin color inspiration feels festive to me. At another time of year, it might make me think of something else. Those superb bright pops of super-saturated red always feel merry and bright, and they can really bring unexpected life to an otherwise vintage toned design. A touch of snow-white here and there also keeps it from getting too dark, as well as that one small twinkle of silver. None of that stops the red from being your true superstar of this design, which totally transforms it. See how it compares to the original.

Which do you prefer?

Handmade Highlights – Bah Humbug

Delightfully festive, and oh so quirky. Lisa Leggett on instagram stitched this merry Bah Humbug last Christmas for a friend, obviously someone with a sense of humor. It’s too cute not to bring up again!
