A little throw pillow reminder about how badass and radical FabulouslyFierce is! I can think of many women in my life who deserve to display this proudly in their homes.

Long November nights are a fantastic time for creating embroidery projects, and the UT Flickr Pool is a great place to find inspiration for your next creation. Check out what stitchers like you have been making of late…

This two tone dragonfly bag reminds me of a summery picnic. Summer Creations really knocked it out of the park.

Happy Fall!

The leaves are changing, and the cool winds are blowing here at Urban Threads. Grab a cup of hot cider and check out the amazing work everyone has been creating, and wearing…

urban threads steampunk Wyvren for the guy in your life

To start, this vest by kraizdnurz is absolutely stunning. The Wyvren accent peeking out of the pocket is so fantastic. I want the dress code at work to require embroidered steampunk vests.

IMGP1256

I am loving this Wonderland neck collar. Nathalie created the pattern herself, and did a beautiful job with the lacing up the back!

TimeWrinkler stitched this amazing t-shirt in record time! Yay! I love the crystal embellishments, and the silver metallic unicorn horn.

ribs

This under bust corset by Nikki of Dark Knits Boutique is elegant, romantic, and spooky all at the same time. I love the choice of fabric, and of course, the anatomical rib cage design.

Embroidered Pashmina Infinity Scarf

It is scarf season! This infinity scarf by klix creations looks so cozy! I love the light Mendhika Lotus stitching with the soft pink fabric.

Burda 5/11

What a beautiful garment Ganz und Garn has created! The delicate Mendhika Fish stitched on top of the lacy pull over is superb.

This little girl’s skirt is totally “Cute as Hell”! The sequined leash for the little devil is a perfect accessory. Luna of Astral Me made this, and many more adorable items. Check her out!

SewMyGosh up-cycled this slick fall jacket to a whole new level of awesomeness by adding some Parisian roses. This is a great technique for any hard-to-hoop garments you would love to see embroidered!

Going full circle back to embroidered vests, My World’s a Stage modified our steampunk ray guns to make this one. I love the sassy sophistication the stitching brings to the outfit.

Pin Cushion 2

And finally, I think everyone needs one of these babies by gnewfer. The ultimate Urban Threads pincushion! You can get the free UT logo here.

I hope you found as much inspiration in all of these fabulous fashions as I have. Go grab an old sweater, scarf, skirt, or vest and your favorite threads and get stitching! Or create your own patterns and find new ways to incorporate awesome embroidery into your wardrobe. Then post your projects to the UT flickr group so we can all enjoy.

The collection of wonders and delights that Urban Threadsters have been posting to the UT flickr group is impressive! Here is a peek of some of the projects to be found.

Ingrid stitched up these Dark Fairy Tale tea towels. I can almost smell the dough rising and the stew bubbling in the cauldron. What a perfect autumn kitchen addition!

The mix of old crafts with new technologies is amazing in this well executed project by Claudia. The book love design looks great in blue!

ADORABLE!  Crysta aka Morning Tempest has an eye for Cthulhu cuteness!

I also have a thing for feathers! This charming necklace of feathers by byAnhor is exquisite.

Holiday Bunny March 2012

I love this hand stitched holiday bunny by Idurrant20. Thick hand stitched satins have such a great texture to them.

Stitching up some steampunk goodies

Mtcoffinz has quite a collection of amazing projects you can find on flickr. I love this in-progress shot of the machine stitching out a design from our recent Steampunk Alchemy batch.

Dress

I want! The sewing machine schematic is a great waist piece. And I love the button accents. Nathalie did a great job in the dress construction as well. I would love to see it on it’s intended wearer.

This is a sweet application of our Parisian Love Letter batch. They are wedding favor envelopes and a ring bearer pillow by wedding favor bags. What a sweet Paris wedding snuggle!

I love the eclectic mix of projects showing up everyday. They never cease to inspire me. If you are looking for your own inspiration, take some time to look through the UT flickr pool. Urban Threadsters do not disappoint!

ALICE PILLOW BACK

Yay! and liddle lamzy divy created this amazing pillow that layers the Wonderland designs, with the Vintage Key with Ribbon, Fancy Teapot, and our Teacup Stack. She nailed the thread colors and did a great job with placing each design. The backside of the pillow is Wonderland fabric from our very own spoonflower store!

Stunning work by everyone! I feel refreshed and renewed and ready to get back to work. I hope everyone stays cool and crafty in the summer heat! Check out the UT flickr pool regularly for more inspiring projects and be sure to upload and share some of your own.

All About The Attitude

We’ve had an absolutely fantastic response to our new Freebie and contest, all about rocking out with the attitude you have at any age! It seems there are a LOT of you out there who will not be told to “act your age”, and are perfectly content to march to your own beat, whether you’re 6 or 60.

Dear Urban Threadsters: have I told you lately how much I love you? Seriously, we have the best customers in the world. You guys are all so cool it hurts. 

Here are a couple of the entries we’ve had so far, from folks giving attitude in all kinds of ways an in all different ages. We even have some of our furried friends telling folks age ain’t nothin’ but a number. Check em out…

Attitude

Sharon – 55

“I updated an old tie dye shirt. At 55, I have quite a few things that need updating. I also was able to impress the 30-somethings on May 25 with my ‘Don’t Panic’ towel. Love your designs and your web site!”

Chris – Youngin’ 

showin’ off some embroidered attitude, stitched by Marie.

Kim- 52 

“I have two grandkids that live here at our home, so I’m really busy. I have four other grandkids that live in Italy (military). Sewing has become my passion again. Actually one of my coworkers got me hooked on machine embroidery. I could kiss her for that because I never would have found UT, if she didn’t. I absolutely LOVE your stuff. Keep up the wonderful work. We are all crazy about ya’ll, right ladies????”

ut_attitude

Kona’s Mom – 30 something   Kona – Who knows in dog years

“Kona is modeling a great bandanna I made. This saying from Urban Threads totally ROCKS as I’m a 30 something and feeling that age thing creaping up! So, I’m stitching away to stay young!!” :)

Jackie -59

Jackie made a Quilt Ninja vest! “I cross my arms and whip out the ruler with one hand and the rotary cutter with the other and shout ‘Quilt Ninja!’. I’m a legend in Virginia Beach.”

Kätlin -43

“I turned 43 in May and I’m still punk.” On a side note, is that a BaroquePunk jacket we see, too? Awesome.

Gina -48     Sadie-Loo – 10

“When the ‘Attitude’ design was announced I immediately thought of my beautiful yet slobbery Sadie-Loo. She is a Newfoundland with unending drool, and she’ll be rockin’ her new bib in a couple weeks to receive her Living Legend award (to celebrate her 10th birthday which was May 28th).”

Tina – Young at Heart

Tina was trying to figure out how she could bring a bit of personal flair to her graduation, when she came across this design. “Not only did I stand out with my Honors and my merit but my true personality was able to come out with your designs.”

Want to see more? Check out all the entries in the Urban Threads flickr pool, and be sure to check out the contest, grab the freebie, and enter your own! Did we mention you can win a $25 UT gift certificate for entering? The contest is open now until June 19th at 11:59pm.

Get stitching! And never forget, you’re never too old (or young) to rock some awesome embroidery.

Flickr Roundup

As usual, we’re overdue for that awesome time where we see what amazingness has been filling up the flickr pool lately. Let’s have a look at what’s shown up since our last roundup…

The Girls up close

1.2.Stitcharoo has hand stitched this beautiful and slightly twisted little alphabet piece called “C is for Conjoined” using the Two Headed Girl design. I just adore the detail of the stitching.

"Loveletters from Paris" Pillow Set

Bathina took our Parisian postcard pillow tutorial to heart and created this amazing and gorgeous version of her own, complete with matching Parisian Bee pillow.

Keyboard Geekery lined - urban threads

Howard Avenue stitched up an awesomely geeky camera strap complete with ctrl alt delete design and matching liner. If you’re going to rock the camera strap in style, geeky embroidery is the way to do it.

I want to know everything about this Alice in Wonderland tea time jacket from strikkeknitsincluding how can I make one of my own? I bet you’re wondering the same thing.

I’ll see if I can find out.

Mix 007

Adorable is the name of the game for this cute little gift pack from Giliell.

She created this little package from a friend who’s expecting, complete with all kinds of little monsters, including a little sea monster who just wants to be friends, a monster in training, and of course, a little monster plush. Lucky friend!

A little zipped pouch

Missing your daily dose of vegetables? donmark26 made this to make sure at least you can carry around adorable veggies, even if you’re not nomming on them.

tshirt

My World’s a Stage lost the color but kept the elegance of the new Parisian series, making this absolutely gorgeous monochromatic tee. This looks so chic!

I’m seriously eyeballing some of my grey tees and thinking they need to look a bit more French…

Geschirrtuch

Valentonia is whipping up something extra cute for the kitchen, with these adorable designs from the Kitchen Engravings series. Yum!

SAM_2108

Finally, there’s a wonderfully touching story to this beautiful Strength pillow from Erica, who made it for her mum on Monther’s Day. Erica says…

“We recently found out that my dad (a leo) has a terminal illness. This embroidery design was perfect for a pillow that would be easy for her to move/carry around to be with her when she needed it.”

Truly inspiring, and an amazing gift. Thanks for sharing Erica.

Thanks to all the crafty folk to share their stitches with us in our Urban Threads flickr pool! It’s such a treat to see all the amazing an inventive ways people are using the designs. Want to see more? Check out all our flickr roundup posts for even more inspiration.
