Mark Nason Threads

If you ever get in a rut with how to use your embroidery, I highly recommend looking at the fashion world for inspiration. I love seeing how designers use machine embroidery in new and more interesting ways.

I recently came across a Mark Nason and his  grungy tone-on-tone use of embroidery on boots and leather. Check it.

It’s also a perfect example of how to use machine embroidery for manly styles, as I’d say most guys would rock this style of embroidery on things. It’s a gorgeous combination of tone on tone that almost makes it akin to embossing, or a subtle use of dip and brushed dyes to give the colors on the embroidery a faded, blended look.  It’s all just too delicious.

The price tag may not be, unless someone really loves you for Christmas (his boots and bags usually start around $300) but with a creative mind and your trusty embroidery machine, there’s no reason you can’t use this as a fantastic place to jump start your crafting.

    These boots totally rock! I’ve often looked at my old knee highs and thought about adding some embroidery… least it’s summer here so plenty of time to think about it before pulling them out of the box again.
