We’re barking about… Threads

Just when you think you have all the dog paraphernalia you could possibly need, you realise that actually, there’s always room for a little bit more. And as a self-confessed Crazy Dog Lady, I have no idea why I haven’t ordered a T-shirt with Ernie and Stan’s cute little faces on before!

Threads specialises in making personalised, embroidered clothing for both adults and children – and when I stumbled across its Instagram account earlier this year, I just knew I wouldn’t be able to resist placing an order.

All you need to do is send over a few clear photos of your pet’s face, choose your product and colour, then sit back and wait for your embroidered item to arrive. I love my T-shirt featuring both boys – it is an excellent likeness, although I was expecting it to be a darker grey so next time, I’d maybe pick a bolder shade to make their colourings stand out more.

Threads was started by Beth Welbourne in 2020 after she was “bored” in lockdown. And since then Beth, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, has sold more than 10,000 items. From £22.95 T-shirts to fleeces and hooded blankets, Threads has something for everyone. It also offers affordable accessories, such as canvas bags for £15.95.

Personalised products can take up to four weeks to make so if you’ve got a special occasion in mind, be organised and place your order early! There is no extra charge for postage in the UK either.

As well as pet embroidery, Threads specialises in photo outline embroidery and can also make plain personalised items and custom orders. For more information or to see the full range of products on offer, visit the Threads website.
