Flora and Fauna

Normally this post would have been up a few days ago, but in case you haven't heard we welcomed our daughter Mia into the world on 3rd February.

She was nine days late and apparently spent that extra time well as she came out at a whopping 9lb 12oz! She is absolutely perfect and we couldn't be happier.

Luckily my team of incredible volunteers (my parents and in-laws) worked super hard to put the boxes together whilst I was recovering and got them all sent out in time. I could not be more thankful to them and to Andy for everything they have done.

So, the boxes this month have a little touch of Spring to them with gorgeous floral fabric and beautiful butterfly fat quarters. Let's take a closer look.

Luxury Box

The fabric in this months Luxury Box is a gorgeous Art Gallery Farbics Rayon called Tiny Dancer (metallic) from the Bachelorette Fusions collection. It is so beautiful and floaty and I absolutely love the colour. Rayon (viscose) is such a lovely fabric to work with and will look gorgeous made up in this months pattern, the Lottie Blouse from Simple Sew.

The pattern also includes a pencil skirt, which can be made from medium weight fabrics. Paired with the blouse in the AGF fabric will make a great work or night out outfit.

Classic and Mini Box

The fabric in the Classic and Mini boxes is also a gorgeous floral viscose in a beautiful teal blue colour. I can't wait to see what gets made from these fabrics, viscose works beautifully for dresses, blouses and shirts. Make sure to post photos of your make on Facebook or on Instagram using the hashtag #sewhayleyjanemakes.

Every box also contains 2 meters of gorgeous floral trim, some in pink and others in purple as well as a set of glass-headed pins. These pins are great for dressmaking as the glass heads make them easier to see when you drop them on the floor and, if you happen to go over one with the iron they won't melt!

The fat quarters are a beautiful collection called Butterfly Garden, I love the prints and the colours - I think they will make some gorgeous pencil cases or notebook covers.

I hope you enjoy all the goodies in your February boxes, let me know in the comments what you are planning to make with them.
