Tutorial – DIY Embroidered Sunglasses

embroideredsunglasses12

Remember that post I did that covered the amazing embroidered sunglasses from Ulyana Sergeenko’s Couture 2013 collection? I guess those embroidered glasses have captured the interest of the crafty world, because I’ve  seen them pop up now and then over the last few weeks. I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone figured out how to DIY them.

That’s right, honestlywtf has a tutorial all about how to make your own embroidered glasses! Check it out. And I hope you have a steady drill hand…

Ulyana Sergeenko’s Embroidered Glasses

I always love peeking at runway fashions from time to time to see what crazy or amazing use of embroidery pops up next. These amazing embroidered goods (glasses! what next?) are from designer Ulyana Sergeenko’s Couture 2013 collection. I love her playful use of folk style embroidery combined with modern and chic accessories!

Flickr Roundup

I’m in love with all the amazing work in the UT Flickr group. Let me count the ways with a February roundup!

Valentine's Kitties

These sweet, quirky Valentines day kitties by Weirdlings are so much fun! I love the different color ways of the doodle heart, and of course the little embroidered eyes really bring these kitties to life.

duckies

My baby Olive, loves baths and yellow ducks! I think this quilt is right in her wheel house. Kathleen really had a creative stroke of genius when putting this together.

Dueling duck quilts! This one by Katrina adds great typography to the quilt layout.

Bacon Cat Towel is Born

Of course Steampunk Bacon Cat should live in the kitchen! Vintage FairyTale’s made this awesome ruffled kitchen towel.

This beautiful wedding bunting with gorgeous celtic charms was created by the anti cute. This would be great to decorate for any romantic occasion.

Odo likes his new pouch

What what what?! Hak42 has a steam punk sugar glider named Odo?! Odo really has a sweet little home in this embroidered bag.

wristlets

I love these wristlets by Jessica that use some neat skull and music embroidery. These look so fun and can store so many usefully tiny things you might need on hand.

DQS10 Extras

The colors on this doodle bird really pop! I love the way Tami paired embroidery and fabric designs.

Night Sky 1

Pippa created a beautiful space quilt with glow in the dark thread for the constellations. She created the milky way with a bleach splattering technique.

This stunning evolution hand towel by stichfork makes me want to bake some crumpets and throw a valentines day tea party!

Flight of Fancy journal

Wow! Heather carved a rubber stamp, then printed the image and pasted it to a journal cover. This flight of fancy design never looked better!

Rose

I wanted to show off the mad hand embroidery skills by idurrant20. This rose detail from the dark fairy tale series is exquisite.

Embroidered Covered Box

Yes! Timewrinker wins again! She created this cute celtic heart box and I love the rick rack border.

I love how versatile and imaginative everyone is with their embroidery. Keep sharing the love and posting pictures to the UT Flickr group of all the amazing projects you create. We love seeing it, and we love you all!
