Fabric Box Winter 16

Sew Boxes have added another subscription box to their range a fabric box, just like the Season box it comes out quarterly. The Winter box is the first fabric box.

In the box we have

  • 1m Teal Broadcloth
  • 1m Vera Bradley Leaves
  • 1m Vera Bradley Floral
  • 50cm Triangles in Teal
  • 50cm Michael Miller Melanie
  • 2 spools Guttermann thread

As the name suggests this box fabric based, you don’t any other sewing gadgets or patterns. The box comes in 2 size options to cater for different budgets, this is the larger box. The smaller box is exactly the same but the size of the fabric pieces are smaller and you only get 1 spool of thread. To be honest when I first heard about the box I thought I don’t need any more fabric I’m not going to like this box besides fabric choice is so subjective. After opening this box and seeing the fabric how it is really nicely put together. The fabric prints are all usable and co-ordinate with each other. Even if you were to get the small size box the size pieces that you get are very workable with. Ok so you may not get an entire garment out of one piece of fabric but you can use them in conjunction with existing fabric in your stash to create clothing or combine the pieces in the box to create a project. The fabric is quilting cotton so you could make a quilting type project with them or use them to make gifts such as zipper pouches or bags. The triangles would make wonderful bias binding in any project. With the Vera Bradley fabric my first thought was skirts. I love the teal fabric and don’t want to cut it up. I’ll be honest I don’t an immediate project in mind for these fabrics. They will go in my stash and when the perfect project comes along I’ll use them then. A girl can never have too much fabric.
