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? ¬†ūüėČ

The “She Believed She Could” design was originally a freebie, and has spun off so many cute projects since its release. I’m especially in love with this version from allindastitch¬†because it’s so simple and chic, with that chevron background and that cute frame. Sometimes less is more!

Alicia shared this spooky-cute wreath on her instagram account. I love that it feels both crafty and appropriately spooky for the season, with those fun plushy skulls. Plus, the bright bold colors of Dia de los Muertos adds more color than Halloween usually allows!

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!

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.
