One of our customers loved our Bulldog Lover patch so much that she requested an enlarged version on a laptop bag, and we loved how it came out so much that we’ve decided to make it available to everybody! If you follow Storied Threads on any of our social media (and I hope that you do!) it should come as no surprise that the design is based on our own bulldog, Beatrix. We’re pretty big fans of bulldogs and their smooshy, kissable faces!

Ages and ages ago, I had just bought my first embroidery machine. I was using it to make fancy pirate sashes, mostly. Occasionally an embroidered waistcoat or something for a show that I was costuming. I hadn’t yet learned how to make patches, and Storied Threads was still every inch a costume and garb company. It would be a year still before I took the first steps towards becoming the embroidery based company I am now.
When we started approaching the holiday season that year, Mike and I had the idea to make some awesome embroidered gifts for friends and family — and so I drafted my first patterns for messenger bags and for scarves, and these were the results.
My designs have come a long way since then. My bags are a completely different design, and their construction is much more solid and functional. And my scarves are made from flannel instead of fleece, and have lost the fringe ends for a cleaner, less bulky design.
But this was the beginning. The first baby step on a road to awesome, hand made, embroidered accessories for all!
In my house, we lovingly call this design the Clocktopus. Because really, what else would you call it? A steampunk octopus on a background of gears is stitched in shades of brown and gray on black cotton canvas.
