Inspiring ideas from customers!

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.

Quick Pic – So Sweet

Inspiring ideas from customers!

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

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!

Color Inspirations – Gemstone & Slate

Try this bold and bright Gemstone & Slate color scheme out on your embroidery designs

Go contemporary with a twist using this week’s Gemstone & Slate color scheme. Chic silvers and grays are the perfect neutral yet classy backdrop to these super-saturated gemstone colors. Turquoise blues and amethyst purples pop next to bright and bold emerald greens. Tone it down by adding a few shades of gray into the design itself, or let it sit bold and bright on top of your dark fabric in full color. See how it compares to the original.

Handmade Highlights – Sew or Dye Shirt

seworDie

Tina changed “Sew or Die” to “Sew or Dye” in this colorful hand embroidery. She also created the shirt pattern, and has an obvious passion for sewing. Hand embroidering a garment gives it such a cool look. I know it takes a lot of extra time to hand stitch something that size, and I think it was totally worth the effort.

Grab your own Sew or Die design and show the world your passions.
