I’ve decided to join up to Sew Box Subscriptions. It is a company that each month sends you a mystery box of patterns and sewing supplies. The May box was my first one.
In the box this month we have
- 1.5m of jersey knit fabric
- 30cm piece of chiffon
- 1m cotton edge lace
- 2 cross grain ribbon
- 1m Riley Blake pom pom trim
- Julia Woman’s cardigan pattern by Mouse House Creations
- Scarves and Cowl pattern by Make It Perfect
- Birch shirring elastic
- Birch hemming tape
- Wooden beads
- Discount voucher for Zebra Fabrics
- Schmetz jersey sewing needles
- Fabric bead necklace tutorial
You get a lot in the box. The cardigan is not normally a pattern I would’ve tried but I’m going to give it ago at some point. There a few variations of it so I’ll find one that is for me. Unfortunately I already have the Cowl pattern but that’s ok cause I’ll give it away. At least I know its something that I would’ve like to get. The sewing supplies included will get used at some point as will the fabric. I’ve wanted to try a fabric bead necklace for ages so now I have the beads.
I’m happy with the first box. I wasn’t sure what to expect or if I would use what was in it. Everyone has their own taste in sewing and fabrics. I’m hoping these boxes will expand my sewing to different areas that I wouldn’t normally think of going to. When I make the cardigan it will be a step away from my fascination of sewing skirts.
