UT Tutorial – Kawaii Critters


After releasing those Kawaii faces last week, there really was only one thing to be done with them…

Make SQUEE worthy Kawaii Plushie friends! There’s a free pdf pattern included, and I promise even with basic sewing skills these cute little critters are easy to put together. Want to make one? Get the tutorial here!

UT Tutorial – Happy Cactus Pincushion


Unlike some of our other pincushion designs, this little guy doesn’t mind his pins and needles one bit! Yup, this prickly plush can only earn his spikes by helping you out in the sewing room. Stitch him up all in the hoop, and then for extra fun, stick him in a mini pot with some stones so he can liven up your desk with plush greenery year round.

Want to make your own? Grab your little cactus design here, and then check out this tutorial on how to make him!

Tutorial – Lavender Sachet Plushies

Urban Threadster Tabatha from Bending Pins shared an adorable tutorial over on Quilt Story.

She made these little lavendar sachets using various UT designs, like the little bunny, gingerbread man, gnome and fox. These great little sachets can be adapted for any season, but they would be especially great for the holidays!

Check out the tutorial here.

Flickr Roundup

It’s the November roundup!

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…

Dragonfly Bag

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


I love these beautiful Parisian clutches by Wiiberzug.  I could see them filled with cute cosmetics, or even mini embroidery kits!

Evenfall lace butterfly.

Draconyz used lavendar variegated thread and turned this Evenfall Lace Butterfly into a stunning hair clip.


WickedStepmother1969 wins again by making these awesome embroidered batitude bunny high tops.

Skeleton Key Sweater (Key)

This hand embroidered skeleton key looks exquisite on Zhad_Squad‘s sweater.

Blue Polic Box

Magical Monk Bags created this stunning police box bag. Hmm, what does this remind me of?


This purse by MeiSchterwerk makes such a bold statement. I love the yellow roses!


This gears and cogs, pleather stocking by Annmadestuff is both festive and radical.

Diabetes Postcard 2012

2012 World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange by Gnewfer. Mad Scientist and kitty are proud to be a part of creating awareness!

Mad scientist doll  3

Speaking of mad scientists, here is a stuffie made in his imageSharkgoddess3 nailed it.

The Amazing Mr Finch

Oh Mr Finch.

His work is exactly the kind of creepy beautiful that reminds me of all my favorite things about Autumn. Using reclaimed materials, often with found needlework, his soft sculptures are delicate and dark all at once, bespoke with age that makes them feel like if you sat one upon your shelf it would look like it had lived in that place a lot longer than you.

You can see more of his amazing work on his website, or if you’re lucky grab up a piece when his Etsy shop is back from vacation. Maybe if I’m very good this year, a new strange and beautiful little bunny will join my collection.

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.
