A monthly box of sewing goodies, delivered to your door

Be Mine

February’s SewHayleyJane boxes were a vision of pink and red this Valentine’s month – a box of beautiful goodies that were just for you!

We have had fun playing around with Valentine’s and Galentine’s themes in previous years but this time I wanted the colours to work together and do the talking. I love pink and red as a combination so this was my starting point for building the boxes around this time.

Luxury Boxes

The fabric in the Luxury boxes this month is the softest brushed cotton tartan called Peterhead from Lady McElroy in royal blue and postbox red. It’s quite lightweight for a brushed cotton so will be perfect for shirts and dresses as we head into spring. But I have paired it with the Delilah dress from Made My Wardrobe. A chic shift dress with some really interesting details on the back bodice including the options of a deep V or X back.

The Luxury and Classic boxes also received a sweet sticker in the boxes by Samantha Claridge featuring the words You Are Sew Awesome surrounded by gorgeous sewing goodies. These stickers are perfect for popping on your machine to remind you how amazing you are even when you’re having to reach for the seam ripper.

Classic and Mini Boxes

This fabric was definitely hitting the mark for Valentines day but cute enough to wear all year round! A cotton poplin scattered all over with pink and red hearts on a black background. I’m already spotting lots of makes with this pop up on the #sewhayleyjanemakes hashtag on Instagram which has been so much fun to see.

The fat quarters this month were actually a mash up of two different colourways from Craft Cotton Co. They were the Mosaic Trends in red and raspberry that we combined into a beautiful pink and red collection which as well as making fab gifts is also the perfect weight to pair with the cotton poplin and use as facings, pocket bags or bias binding.

Every box also came with 2m of a sweet heart print grosgrain ribbon, 100m reel of Gutermann thread a tasty iced biscuit from the local Little Bee Bakery in Romsey and of course the SHJ magazine packed full of awesome content.
