BranFalling2The other day, my sister sent me the link to an event she thought I might be interested in vending. Unlike my other conventions, this one was very specifically centered on books and literature.  We got talking about which of my items would fit into this sort of an event, and somewhere in the conversation, she suggested that I could make embroidered bookmarks.

I loved the idea so much, that I got to designing my first one that evening, a variation on my Bran falling at Winterfell patch.  This bookmark is embroidered with a grey stone tower on a field of sky blue canvas, with the silhouette of a falling boy near the bottom, and the words “The things I do for love.”

The great thing about our embroidered bookmarks — besides just being awesome bookmarks — is that are still fully funcional as sew-on patches, too! Use it to hold your place in your favorite novel, or sew them on a bag or jacket to show your literary loves to the world.

ConesOfDunshireIt’s simple, really. There are two Wizards, one Maverick, one Arbiter, two Warriors (the game CAN be played with only one warrior, but it’s not as good), one Corporal, and one Ledgerman. Basically the scorekeeper, but gets to wear a hat. And don’t forget — it’s all about the Cones.

This sew-on patch measures 4″ wide by 2.5″ tall, and is embroidered on a white cotton canvas.

SciencePenguinApparently, yesterday was National Penguin Day. I didn’t know this was a thing, and was too busy out celebrating a friend’s birthday to notice until today. But this science penguin would still like to celebrate with you. If you would like to celebrate with him, too, you can buy him on our website.

JormungandrThe third of Loki’s children to be designed by Storied Threads, Jormungandr was cast by Odin into the ocean surrounding Midgard, where he grew so large he was able to encircle the entire world, thus earning the name the Midgard Serpent.

This new design is available as a patch both in our Etsy shop and on our website. It’s also available on a variety of products, including t-shirts, leggings, stickers, and phone cases through Redbubble.

FunkyPantsMoving to our new home and new studio has meant adjusting to a smaller space. Part of what this means is that I no longer have as much space to store random pieces of fabric without specific purpose. So, I have set myself a goal of using up as much of this fabric as I can before I’m allowed to go out and buy more. I’ll make skirts, pants, shirts, hoods, hats, whatever the fabric works for.

To that end, I decided it was finally time to use this piece of gorgeous black embroidered linen from Thailand. It’s been sitting in my fabric stash for YEARS while I waffled over what to use it for. I couldn’t cut it like other fabrics, with the way it was embroidered, and I didn’t have very much of it.

Yesterday, I finally bit the bullet and decided it needed to be a pair of wide-legged pants, and here they are!  It’s not the kind of thing I normally make, but I think it was the best solution for this material.  They have an elastic waist and will comfortably fit somebody with a waist measurement of 30″ to 32″. Even better if you have a slender build, like my mannequin wearing them here.  They’ll be available at the Connecticut Robin Hood Festival in a few weeks for $40 — unless somebody reading this just can’t bear the thought of not owning them, and asks for me to ship them to them sooner, of course.

Also a result of moving? Still figuring out the best place to get good, well-lit pictures in the new place. So….sorry for the sort of weird lighting there, I’ll do better next time, I promise!
