Posted by on Nov 10, 2023 in Blog | 0 comments

Mouse Zip Purse with mouse and cheese canvas inserts

Planet Earth Fiber is excited to announce a fun, new self-finishing leather accessory!

The Mouse Zip Purse arrives just in time for the holidays and is one of our favorite gift ideas for the season. 

Measuring approximately 5” wide and 2.5” tall, the Mouse Zip Purse is made of soft lambskin leather in white, with black eyes and stitched black whiskers. Red leather accents the ears and nose, coordinating with a red zipper and wristlet strap “mouse tail”. A striped fabric finishes the roomy interior.

The canvas insert measures 1.25” and will fit our standard sized fob canvases (1.25” round). We love this accessory paired with the cheese canvas or the mouse canvas for a fully coordinated accessory.

Planet Earth Fiber Air Tag Fobs

Planet Earth Fiber’s air tag fobs arrive just in time for the holiday season and make the perfect gift. Along with our selection of Planet Earth Fiber fob canvases, air tag fobs offer a unique, personalized gift this season needlepointers will love creating and sharing with friends and family. 

Creating custom leather accessories for Planet Earth Fiber retailers is always a fun and creatively rewarding process. Not only does it allow us to stretch our imaginations to produce something new and exciting, but it also gives our family of retailers a unique way to express their individuality.

Whale fob with whale canvas

There are so many opportunities for shaped leather fobs—and we love to design fobs that will represent your business. For example, in the past we’ve created a Statue of Liberty fob for a retailer in New York City. 

While the whale fob shown above features its own unique set of dimensions, we design all of our custom shaped fobs with the same sized space for the canvas (1 ¼” round). All Planet Earth Fiber fob canvases will work with our fobs, no matter the shape! 

The possibilities are endless for customization. Consider shaped leather fobs for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions—and don’t forget about the branding opportunities! While there are certain limitations, we are more than happy to work with you to capture the essence of your brand in a shape that reflects your unique story.

Bat fob with bat canvas

We created the bat fob (above) and ghost fob (below) to celebrate the Halloween season. They each feature canvases currently available from our design studio.

Ghost fob with ghost canvas

Contact us today to learn more about stocking air tag fobs or creating a custom shaped leather fob! We’d love to collaborate on a design with you. And if you’ve ordered a custom shaped leather fob from us before, be sure to tag @planetearthfiber on Instagram and Facebook. We’d love to help spread the word about your unique leather fobs to our audience!

Pepper Pot Silk has long been beloved among needlepointers for its beauty, versatility, and wide, generous array of lustrous colors. 

A single strand composed of 3 thin plies of 100% silk, Pepper Pot Silk’s palette covers 266 colors including solid and variegated hues. Pepper Pot Silk is designed for 18 mesh; however, it works equally as well on 13 and 14 mesh. 

Needlepointers often note that Pepper Pot Silk glides effortlessly through canvas, does not pill, offers full coverage and creates beautiful, silky smooth stitches with a vibrant sheen.

Spotlight on Milan

skeins of Planet Earth Fiber Milan threads in various colors

Have you stitched with Milan yet?

Earlier this summer, we introduced a new single-strand thread to the Planet Earth Fiber family. Composed of 50% merino wool and 50% silk, Milan exudes a glossy, lustrous sheen and feels incredibly soft.

Available in 30-yard skeins, you can expect Milan to cover approximately 21-square inches on 13 mesh when using the basketweave stitch. However, Milan is suitable for both 13 and 18 count mesh. 

Milan is available in 240 colors that cover a wide spectrum of hues, from delicate pastels to vivid brights, bold neons, elegant neutrals, and radiant jewel tones. Finding the perfect color of Milan is an easy—and enjoyable!—experience.

The mixture of silk and wool means Milan glides effortlessly through canvas and creates truly beautiful stitchwork. Charmed by Needlepoint used Milan in White, Sugar Plum, Shaved Ice, Shoot, Whipped Butter, and Lady Slipper to fill in the background of the canvas below. Notice the gleam?
