Urban Threads - machine & hand embroidery

Urban Threads and I got to chatting about skull beads which I always seem to have in abundance. Chatting about skull beads turned into the idea of doing a swap. The swap turned into a wonderful surprise when I opened the box!

Within the magical box of embroidery goodness there was a soft & squishy jersey pillow with 2 crowned skulls, a little purple voodoo dude, mini tote with skull & crossbones, embroidery templates & thread, hand towels: crow on skull & skull with top hat (hidden under the other, sorry!). In my excitement I forgot to include the glow stick bracelets she sent me also.

She can definitely embroidery like no tomorrow! I am one lucky gal.

Check out her site for some amazing designs, tutorials and projects for hand and machine embroidering. This is not your grandma's redwork! You can also find her review of my items and the Etsy Dark Side Team here!

Above are just a few of the items from Etsy Dark Side members that I sent to Urban Threads. I also sent a Maneki Neko and a Skull Gears Pin!

As Promised, Bloomers!

And, a couple more brooches:

 Snowflake Gears Pin  Hand-stitched Spiderweb Pin


Oh right! The bloomers. Here they are ;) :

Medium - Carnivale Striped Bloomers

The above pic is linked to the size Medium (40" hip or less) listing. I only have enough of this lovely Silk/Rayon fabric to make two pairs of bloomers so the second pair is under a CUSTOM listing (S, M, or L)!

Land & Sea ~or~ It's Been Too Long!

My latest batch of custom work comes from one of my faaaavorite customers. Not just because he (yes HE) pays on time and never haggles me but he comes up with some challenging stuff!
You may remember the Lemur Doll:

Well, he requested an XL version of it! The size of my XL Zombie Monkeys!

Uber Lemur complete!! *whew*

11.5"H with a 22"+ tail!! It's wired and pose-able oooooh :D (which I had to sew into the body by hand!)

He also requested these:

Lg Dolphin = 15"L x 10"W x 5" & 15" around

And the XL Kawaii Piggy in pink ( ::)) = 10"L x 5.75"T x 6"W & 18" around
It is ridiculously cute though, I admit.

DIYScene Team July Swap

Can ya guess the theme? LOL

These are the goodies I made for my swapee, an awesome DIY clothing designer, Brooke of Crossbones Couture!:
A 14" x 14" canvas pillow cover w/ a from scratch applique & black ribbon ties at the back.
A cellphone/zipper pull skull & heart dangling charm.
