Delightfully festive, and oh so quirky. Lisa Leggett on instagram stitched this merry Bah Humbug last Christmas for a friend, obviously someone with a sense of humor. It’s too cute not to bring up again!

Handmade Highlights – Little Jed

Handmade Highlights - The best in hand embroidery projects from Urban Threads customers.

Such a lovely idea! A “subway style” birth announcement in embroidery, with a little elephant and fox detail. What a darling keepsake for the babies room! Keep up the good work daisyeyes.

Handmade Highlights – Santa Tea Towel

Tis the season! Thismomloves hand embroidered the Snowstorm Santa design on a white linen dish towel. I am always looking for sweet and thoughtful handmade gifts to give, and this piece would be perfect! It’s always great inspiration to see how you can create some of your own hand embroidered gifts, or if not, buy some from a local craft fair and support the handmade community this holiday season!

Even though Dia de los Muertos was a couple of days ago, I couldn’t help sharing this awesome hand stitched applique sugar skull from mrscreativegypsy. He’s just one little piece of the original design, but her stitches have added so much character, he’s amazing on his own!

I love this sweet hand stitched book covers by Benhy Costello. The peacock feathers look great, and it’s such a creative way of covering cherished books!

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

The one thing we wish we’d known is that Internet shoppers respond well to just being yourself. You don’t need to compete with other makers!

I love the story behind this piece of hand embroidery. Zoe’s mom Kim was pregnant in the hospital, waiting for her to be born while she stitched this woodgrain heart. What a great way to pass the time while in early labor!
