Color Inspirations – Softness & Shadow

Find the balance between darkness and light with this Softness & Shadow color inspiration for your embroidery designs.

A new year, and still more colors! This year, find the balance between darkness and light with this Softness & Shadow color inspiration. Just because you’re partial to light, soft tones doesn’t mean you can’t mix them with a little darkness now and then. Give your pastel hues and unexpected accent with a deep charcoal, like a shadowed tree against the soft white snow. You can further add to the sense of delicate age with softly patterned fabric or a splash of dark ink. See how it compares to the original.

Which do you prefer?

Quick Pic – Soft Seas

Inspiring ideas from customers!

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

Quick Pic - Soft Seas. The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

Such a gorgeous combination of embroidery and matching fabric from stitcher Angelsx4 on flickr. She grabbed one of the designs from the Tula Pink collection, and paired it masterfully with some of Tula’s fabrics. This is the perfect example of how embroidery and fabrics are a match made in heaven!

This certainly gets my gears spinning about projects for the new year!

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!

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?  ;)
