Get in the holiday spirit with help from Urban Threads

What better way to get in the holiday spirit then with free stuff!

Urban Threads is currently offering this crazy cute embroidery design for FREE until Sunday November 30th!

I made up a towel in less than 30 minutes, but just imagine how cute this design would look on a stocking or a sweater for the holidays:)

Halloween 2014

Taking a basic steampunk costume from value village for $39.99 and kicking it up a notch with embroidery from urbanthreads.com

This is what I started with:

Original Steampunk Costume from Value Village

Using some great steampunk embroidery designs from urbanthreads.com I embellished the top:

Using my existing Kwik Sew pattern and scrap materials I had, I made some fingerless gloves.

On one glove I embroidered a beautiful pocket watch design from my new steampunk collection, while adding a more industrial look to the other glove using grommets:

And last but not least my gear mask sewn with metallic thread and created with the help of an urbanthreads.com tutorial:

Embellished with gears, chains and spin arrows from Michael’s scrap booking section:

In the end it turned out to be a super fun costume to pull together in no time… Well in a few hours before Halloween anyways 😉

Who wouldn’t love a little Pooh…

I have been working on a new project recently and wanted to pop in and give you all a sneak peak of what is to come. Also I ordered some new Pooh and Friends embroidery designs and wanted to share how that experience was.

I am working on a baby quilt! The progress started a little slow but now that I have it figured out we are moving right along! The reason for the slow start was I was trying to make the quilt with 5.5” x 5.5” squares but because that is slightly smaller then my embroidery hoop it was causing random issues with embroidery so I had to scrap what was done and make the squares 6.5” x 6.5” which is going to make a larger size baby blanket.

I have always been a fan of the classics when it came to baby stuff so I saw this as a great opportunity to order some Winnie the Pooh machine embroidery designs. I found a fantastic website called ‘Save On Designs’ and they had a 500+ Winnie the Pooh Machine Embroidery Designs set for only $14.99. I was able to select delivery method as download so I had all the designs within an hour of ordering them.

I was a little disappointed that I couldn’t see what the designs looked like prior to putting them on my machine and thought I would email the company to see if there was another way. To my surprise I received an answer in less then an hour on a Sunday night via email from their support team telling me they would set me up with a viewer so I could see what all the designs!

Needless to say I got started right away to see how these would look and here are just a few:

I will be back with more once I finish the quilt to reveal the entire project.

If you haven’t ordered from ‘Save on Designs’ before I highly recommend them. The Designs are well created and their service was excellent. Not to mention they have a great selection of embroidery designs, file types and the prices are amazing.

Do you have any favourite embroidery design websites?
If so please share!
