UT Tutorial – Nursery Rhyme Plush Dolls

In love with our new Misfit Nursery Rhymes collection? Well we’ve got a fun way to really bring some characters from that series to life… as plush printed dolls!

We picked three of our favorite characters from the series and decided to so something extra special. We digitally painted and detailed three fabric doll patterns of Little Miss Muffet, the Cat and the Fiddle, and Humpty Dumpty for you to stitch together.

Have a peek at each design and their matching doll…

Each of the dolls is created with a basic simple shape that can be stitched together with ease, either in one big shape, or with the addition of simple legs for better articulation. Each doll design comes printed of a fat quarter size of fabric.

Want to learn how to put them together? First, grab all three at our Spoonflower store, then check out this tutorial for step by step instructions on how to put them together in no time, so you can pair them with your favorite embroidery designs and make the coolest decor accessories ever.

New Misfit Nursery Rhymes Collection, Handwriting Alphabet & Spoonflower Plush!

We are so excited to finally be able to introduce our brand new Misfit Nursery Rhymes Collection!

For those who loved our Dark Fairytales series, and our previous Primitives style series, this is like all of those combined in all the best ways. This series pulls together everything that was both cute and… lets admit it, a little bit creepy about the old vintage nursery rhymes. Wide eyed characters from all your favorite tales are rendered in a beautiful illustrative style that is perfect for kids or folktale lovers alike, stitched in vintage shades and with just that light twist of macabre we so love here at Urban Threads.

Featuring 9 of your favorite nursery rhymes, Mother Goose, the Cat and the Fiddle, Little Miss Muffet, Humpty Dumpty, Three Blind Mice, Little Bo Peep, Three Little Kittens, Jack and Jill, and Three Men in a Tub,  Each design also has a light stitching accent design featuring the name of each famous rhyme perfect for adding that extra touch to your series.

That’s not all that’s brand new about this collection though. In a fun first, we created three custom plush dolls to match Little Miss Muffet, Humpty Dumpty, and the Cat and the Fiddle that you can get from our Spoonflower store!

Each doll was digitally painted for beautiful print detail that brings each character to life, and they’re quick and easy to assemble. Check out this post to see all the dolls and find out how to put them together!

Finally, you’ve been asking for it pretty much since we began, and certainly after our first Alphabet release… now the Handwriting Alphabet is here! Light stitching and whimsical, this new alphabet was designed to give your embroidered writing a natural, handmade feel. It’s available in 1 inch, 2 inch and 3 inch sizes for all your project needs.

If you’re wondering how to use our alphabets to create your lettered creations, check out this tutorial to learn about perfect placement techniques. They’re the perfect way to add a little ones name to your new nursery rhyme creation!

Pair your designs with a matching plush doll to create the ultimate gift set, or stitch just your favorite designs for one of a kind whimsical creations.

These designs are perfect for creating a whole set of amazing children’s decor!

Use your favorite stitched character paired with a framed version of their lighter accent piece for a look that can span the whole nursery.

4×4 versions of each design make them perfect for tiny accents like bibs and onesies, but each design is also available in big and beautiful 6×10 detail.

Just because they’re nursery rhymes doesn’t mean that everything has to be for kids! The slightly dark vintage style illustrations means they can make beautiful accents and pillows in any room of the house.

Of course, the easiest way to enjoy them all is to just frame up your favorite, and perhaps pair it with his matching doll. Either way these darkly whimsical designs are sure to bring tales of old back to life in a whole new light, and for a whole new generation of fairy tale fans.

So what’s the really good news? Well of course, they’re all on SALE now through May 20th 2012, with fantastic deals on individual designs and even better deals on packs. That sale includes both the Misfit Nursery Rhymes series and the new Handwriting Alphabet! The sale does not cover the dolls, as they are a special purchase through our Spoonflower store, but each doll only requires the purchase of a Fat Quarter of fabric to create.

UT Designs Come to Life

Here’s a first … a doll inspired by an Urban Threads design!

UT stitcher Elizabeth colored in the hand embroidery pattern of the “Such a Doll” design just how she liked it, then created a doll from scratch to look just like her using the new Monster Factory designs.  She’s got hand-crocheted hair and her very own big spool of thread.  Incredible!

Bunny Love

Given my love of bunnies, I hope I can be forgiven for the decibel level of SQUEE I emitted upon finding this little gem. Is that not the cutest little sock bunny you’ve ever seen? He looks super easy to make too, just a few snips and some embroidery.

Excuse me, I have a whole stack of lost socks who are starting to look suspiciously like a pile of bunnies.
