UT Tutorial – Tattoo Tights

Halloween is starting to creep up on us, and it’s a perfect time to try out a whole new look, and whip up a fast costume. Don’t know what to be this year? How ’bout something with a tattooed rockabilly style? No ink commitment required! All we need is a pair of tights and a cool design.

There’s also no embroidery machine required, so everyone can give it a try.

Check out the tutorial here.

Sneaker Stormtrooper from Freehand Profit

Just spotted this over on Boing Boing and though it’s not embroidery, I HAD to share…

That’s some of the fabulous work of Urban Threads August featured artist, Freehand Profit. Yup, he created that whole thing out of sneakers.

Though I can’t quite justify the funds to snap up this one on ebay (look honey, I bought a nerd helmet made of shoes!) you can at least snap up some of his work in embroidery format.

Awesome work from one of our very talented artists.

Painted Thread Spools

Categorize this as things I didn’t know I should never throw away (that is, if all thread were awesome enough to be on wooden spools)…

If you’re unlucky like me to pretty much have all plastic thread spools, especially ones completely devoid of charming illustrations , then lucky enough for you there’s Amy Blackwell. She paints and sells these adorable additions to anyone’s craft room, and has given me serious inspiration if I ever DO get a spool that isn’t a wad of plastic.

More Crafty Ink

Another Urban Threadster goes under the gun. What an amazing tattoo! Isn’t she such a doll?

Way to rock the ink Becky.

Another Urban Threadster Gets Inked!

My new tattoo

Check it! Another crafter has gone under the ink gun armed with some UT designs, and the results are fabulous. Terryboc says…

The wolf is for my father, who loved them. The horse is for my mother who gifted me with the joy of riding. The flourish design by Urban Threads represents me who ties us all together.

Bold and beautiful work. I wonder if I’ll ever be brave enough for a tattoo?

A Package…

A package arrived today.

with something rather special inside…

Hmm… where have we seen the likes of this awesome before?

Oh yes..

The Indelible Mr. Gear has sent us a present!

I thought I’d try them on.

Nope. Still not as cool as Marty. One day...

I love my new glasses.

Apparently I think I'm Blade.

In fact, I was not the only one who was a fan. Word got around the office, and soon everyone wanted in.

The hat is a nice touch

Danielle, resident digitizer and gothic queen.

Taylor, fellow artist rockin’ the double shades look.

Colman, our “Master of Skulls,” just had to try them on.

With Calcium!

Erm… our uh, in-office animal cracker consultant?

OK, this is just getting silly…

And let’s be honest.

Nobody wears them quite like Marty.

Thanks so much Mr. Gear! We will (squabble, fight, steal them back and forth, put them on our toys, and wear them) with pride. Want to know a little more about that awesome guy above? Check out his original featured project post. And know that nobody, really, will ever be able to rock them like Marty Gear.

Make Crafts Not War

No matter your feelings on war, peace, tanks or pink, you have to admit this is awesome. That little pink pom-pom off the gun is just killing me. Get the full story on the tank and the project here.
