Nauticus Ikea Hack from Quick Pics -The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

Ashley sent us this amazing project on facebook, with the description: “My first IKEA hack! The original was a Rast three-drawer dresser. The wood was stained with a red oak, and the fronts were wrapped in an embroidered canvas fabric. I’m really happy with how this came out.” Holy wow! I would be too. What a cool update using the Nauticus pack!

What’s the one thing you wish you knew when you started your store?

I didn’t realize how much detail goes into listing an item… it can be time consuming having to describe every detail about the product. I tend to be a bit disorganized but it is really important that you get that part correct, describe your product in detail…I love doing designs and get so engrossed in my work that I have to tell myself to stop and list some items. I find I get more motivated when I make a sale, then it gets really exciting, especially when someone from the other side of the world buys something… a brilliant feeling!

Embroidered Video Game Pillows from Quick Pics - The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

Geneva Nicole on twitter shared these adorable custom creations, designed by her boys themselves!  They both wanted video game themes, and each created their own custom look. Crafting for kids is way more fun when you can get the kids involved, and you’re sure to make them something they’ll love.

Embroidered Chic Halloween Pillow from Quick Pics - The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

In theme with this week’s Halloween in July celebrations, I thought I’d pick something spooky to feature on this edition of Quick Pics. Quilted Thimble Cottage on flickr stitched up these simple but chic Halloween pillows with this elegant bat design. Honestly, I think it’s pretty enough to be out all year. Then again, I’d make every day Halloween if I could. Still, this isn’t a bad time to start thinking about decor and especially stitched costumes. It’s just a few short months away!

Embroidered monogram pillows from Quick Pics - The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

Michelle on facebook stitched these lovely letter pillows using the Letter Perfect collection to dress up her home. I love how different and colorful each of these pillows are. These would make great gifts for a housewarming or as a special touch for each person in your family. Plus it’s easy to add designs like this on ready made pillow cases. A fast and fun decor project!

If you missed it before, we stitched up TWO one-of-a-kind GIANT embroidered pieces, using our industrial machines and special thick Burmilana thread, stretched them on frames, and signed the back as original limited edition art pieces! Think of them like a print, but waayy cooler, because these things are big, bold beautiful thread brought to life on canvas. Last weekends giveaway saw someone lucky walk away with the Raven piece.

Each stretched piece is 16 inches by 20 inches, with the embroidery design measuring nearly 17 inches tall.

WIN An Original Signed Art Piece – Embroidered Raven

*Contest is now closed – winner coming soon! Remember, your chance for the bear comes this upcoming weekend!*

anima_giveaway

In celebration of the new Anima embroidery design collection, we thought we would do a very different kind of giveaway…

You see, Urban Threads works a little differently from some other stock embroidery companies, in that we employ all in-house artists that create these awesome embroidery designs. Our team of talented designers and digitizers work hard to make all of these creations unique and ready for thousands of crafters to stitch. However, sometimes it’s kind of fun to remember these pieces at their heart are original creations, and so we wanted to do something a little special with two of our favorite designs from the series.
