PUSH Stitchery Giveaway!

Look what we got our hands on…

And we couldn’t be more thrilled. Except for one point…we don’t get to keep it.

You do!

That’s right, we have a copy PUSH Stitchery, the contemporary embroidery book curated by Mr X Stitch (aka Jamie Chalmers) that’s been all over the crafty blogosphere of late and debuting to rave reviews. And you can win this copy!

What do you have to do? Just leave a comment on this post and you’re entered! You have ’til Monday, Oct. 3, 2011 at 11:59pm Central time. We’ll announce our randomly generated winner next week.

So what’s all the fuss about?

This new book is a gorgeous collection of cutting edge embroidery from artists from all over the world. It’s got interviews with the creators as well as beautiful full page photos of absolutely divine stitchery.

If you ever feel the need to defend your embroidery as an art form, this is the book to keep on your coffee table. This collection of artists and crafters shows just what this medium can do, and do it well.

Jaime’s collection shows that embroidery is not just alive, but thriving as the counterculture graffiti of today’s crafting generation.  I love it.

And I’m not the only one. You better hurry up an enter, because this book is just dripping with delicious stitches, and you know Craft Bunny’s penchant for devouring all things tasty and crafty.

(though I do promise your copy will be delivered free of chompy bunny marks)

*Comments closed…winner coming soon!*

 

Bunny Roundup

Wrapping up a spooky Halloween week here at Urban Threads, I thought it would be fun to revisit a popular tutorial that has spawned an army of strange plush bunnies…

Seriously.

How much do you want this?

Because I want it enough to not only have a reason to wish for cold weather, but I’d even try my hand at knitting. And we all know that wouldn’t be pretty. I’m pretty sure my bunny would be lucky to have a mouth, let alone an awesome set of those fanged chompers.

The more eagle eyed of you are no doubt noticing this looks an awful lot like a giant Craft Bunny is trying to eat her head, and that’s because this is Wickedstepmother1969‘s pattern for a Monty Python bunny (read: craft bunny) that is so awesome not only does it look like he’s gleefully chomped your whole head, but you also sort of look like a deranged ninja to boot.

Love it Wickedstepmother1969! You made my day today.
