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.

Quick Pic – Nerd Is So Passé

Inspiring ideas from customers!

badass

UT Stitcher Jessica makes awesome custom bags, and made this one for a customer looking for the perfect bag for one of her college daughters. After putting their brains together a bit, they came up with this brilliant creation.

The term nerd is so passé. We prefer Intellectual Badass these days. And it’s just the sort of thing for an Intellectual Badass roaming around campus.

Handmade Highlights – Robots Love Metal

Sophie really rocked this embroidery design. There are metallic things happening here that are truly outrageous! The metallic threads and accents make this tiny robot come to life.

Rock out with your own Robots Love Metal design and create even more embroidery awesomeness!

Handmade Hightlights – Nerd Pocket

RyBreadsRockin stitched this cute pouch with the ultimate pocket protector design. She used a touch of crayon tinting to make the glasses, pen, and pencil really pop!

Check out our tutorial on crayon tinting, to make your own picture perfect Nerd Pocket design.

Amazing Game Of Thrones Embroidery

Untitled-1

Whether you’re a Game of Thrones nerd or not, you’ll want to head on over to this Buzzfeed post that showcases the amazing embroidery and fashion work of costumer Michele Carragher. The embroidered work on these pieces is mind boggling! I wonder what happens to these amazing pieces when they’re done filming?

Will The Real Sinbonnet Sue Please Stand Up?

steampunk_sue

I’ve been saving this because it was too perfect not to post during our Halloween in July celebration/sale. Awesome Urban Threadster Chelsey dressed up perfectly as our very own Steampunk Sinbonnet Sue for the local awesome nerd convention Convergence this year (previously attended here). Seriously, the costume is dead on. How great is that?

Did we mention we have the best customers ever?

We do.

Thanks for sharing Chelsey! We ♥ you.

July Flickr Roundup

It’s finally time for the July Flickr roundup! I am so impressed at the incredible variety and superb quality of the projects that everyone keeps sharing! Here are some of my favorites this month…

monsters

This amazing monster pillow by The Evil Thread is right in my wheel house. I love the neon colors and furry multicolored monsters.

zombie-kitty-shoes-002

Mary Kay Beckley made these one of a kind zombie kitty shoes! They are so summery and spectacular. It just goes to show you can have fun even without an embroidery machine sometimes.

Here is a cute hand embroidered smart cookie by Rosie. The effect of embroidering on the argyle fabric is brilliant!

Einhorntasche

I love this sweet heart shaped einhorntasche (unicorn) bag by Leah. I want one for my toddler, Olive. Or maybe I just want it all for myself!

Oliver + S Roller Skate Dress with Urban Threads Patterned Feathers

Cory created this dress with a feather border for a sweet little girl. She sewed the whole dress from scratch, but it’s a great example of how adding an embroidered border onto a dress or tunic top can really kick it up a notch in awesomeness!

UT Wolves KiltThis very manly embroidered kilt by Draconyz rules.  The nordic wolves look great in those colors.

My first quilt!

Check out this black and white and red all over quilt by Jibbidibbi. Can you believe it’s her first one? She made great use of the miniature menagerie bug doodles with white on black stitching.

These are the best potholders for, dare I say, glamping?! Kraizdnurz clearly has some glamorous camping style with these cute s’more and camper potholders.

Messenger Bag

Great Gans und Garn bag with queen bee running stitch design. The limited color palate she chose is so sophisticated!

UTgalery

How can you make steampunk look snuggly? Petlwing did a great job by making a steampunk quilt! I love the applique gears and kitty cameo!

Ship in a bottle

I feel like this ship in a bottle in an embroidery hoop art by Dona has layers of deep meaning. And I like that.

Celtic Rogue

Finally, here is an amazing Celtic hood by Fine Leather Design. This is an incredible piece, and a great photograph. And did you see those the cuffs?! Wowie-zowie!

Everything is looking snazzy up on the UT Flickr group! I hope everyone is enjoying some summer sunshine by day, before they work all night at their embroidery machines cranking out magical sparkly embroidery awesomeness.
