I’m loving the soft and sweet quilted typography from Comma Workshop. They make their embroidered pieces by hand and by machine, and they’re just divine. Thanks to Poppytalk for sharing!

Flickr Roundup

A shiny new blog deserves a shiny new roundup! We’re starting fresh here, so let’s take a peek at what pretties have shown up in the flickr pool lately…

I'm So Retro bag

This little retro disk was a popular little freebie awhile back, and people have made all kinds of adorkable things with it, including this awesome little bag from Kentfield.  We actually have a printout of this design taped to the side of one of our computers in back.

Yes, we’re that retro.


Finished boots

Some seriously awesome boots from fiftyfirstcrafts, from everyone’s favorite sweater boots tute. I am loving the colors and seriously loving the cross design she chose.


alice in wonderland quilt 2

Can you believe this quilt? Look closely - that’s dozens of our Wonderland designs stitched alll over it!

I drool.

Though not on the quilt though. That wouldn’t be nice.

This stunner was stitched up by horsehaircreek and I think we agree we’re all in love.


Zipped Pouch

*In soviet Russia, machine embroiders you!*


Adorable little zippered pouch from donmark26. Plus, how cute is that little nesting doll fabric?


Maneki Neko

We got to show a little love to our hand stitchin’ peeps, and I am so in love with this fuzzy little needle punch kitteh.

I seriously don’t think that guy could  get any cuter. I hope karalynnn has some seriously epic plans for kitty.


zombie hand angle

Finally, feeling an epic hunger for braaaiiinnzz yet? No? Well, that’s probably good for the rest of us anyway…

You know, I have to say, there’s something really beautiful about the marriage of zombies and polka dot fabric. I think zombies should try it more often. It would give ‘em a little pizzaz.

This precision stitched piece of zombie perfection has been brought to you by TiLT creations.

And the letter Z.

I think we’re off to a fine stitchy start here, peeps. Keep adding your fine threads to our the Urban Embroidery flickr pool and you might see them featured here!
