Creative Packaging

This custom baby shower gift, which includes a hooded infant towel, washcloth, burp cloth, and bib, is carefully folded and and creatively bundled. It is tied with a strip of coordinating fabric, reducing the impact that gift wrap and ribbon has on the environment. Finally, a handmade tag is affixed to the gift using a tiny gold safety pin. The tag is nestled and sewn inside a coordinating fabric cover and includes care instructions, materials, designer, and website information.

. . .

Below is some literature that I included with this shower gift to introduce Nest of Threads vision and goals to the proud mother-to-be who is recieving this Baby Rolls bundle.

I am proud to announce
Nest of Threads
Sewn gifts for baby, kid, and home!

Nest of Threads is an artistic venture that I have been developing through years of training as an artist and through my journey as a mother. Nest of Threads specializes in handmade fabric gifts designed for every child with spirit and every home with character. Nest of Threads premiered in January of 2010 with a super hero and princess cape series, custom baby shower gift sets, and designer dish towels. Please visit my website to view my products and keep a unique creation by Nest of Threads in mind for a special person or occasion in your life. I sincerely hope that you enjoy the design, quality, and softness that makes your Nest of Threads gift so special.

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a...


I am the Blue Torque...

I use my unprecendented powers to combat threats against humanity.

I risk my safety in the service of good without expectation of reward.
Because I exist, the world is a better place to live!

I go nowhere without my trusted young sidekick Monkey.

When I am not saving the world from supervillians...

I use my extraordinary powers of lightning-fast speed, gravity-defying jumps, and sonic screaming...

to have FUN, FUN, FUN!!

The distinctive costume that I wear to conceal my secret identity is called The Torque Cape!

Torque is Nest of Threads' newest cape design. A red gear is appliqued to a bright blue front fabric and backed with a turquiose fabric. The red strap fastens with snap buttons. More pictures to come!

Designer Dish Cloth

Dish towel is made of 100% cotton fabric on front and huckcloth on back.

This is the first towel in a series of three patterned towels. Fabrics chosen to compliment pale turquoise kitchen walls, light travertine flooring, and copper containers and decoration.
