Light Up The Sky
Back in the summer I sat out in the garden one evening hoping to see a few shooting stars as it was supposed to be a spectacle. Of course most of the magic happened in the early hours of the morning and when you have a little one ready and raring to go at 6am staying up that late really isn’t an option.
But it did sew the seed for a new theme as I searched for the one and only constellation I knew (the plough) and used an app on my phone to find more.
So Novembers boxes have been a few months in the planning stages but I am so proud of how they have turned out. Dare I say it… they might even be my favourite! Gasp I can’t believe I said that, it’s like choosing a favourite child and you know I love each and every box! But that aside, let’s jump in!
Oh this fabric is so beautiful! It’s an Art Gallery Fabric rayon called Night Sky from the Enchanted Voyage collection by Maureen Cracknell featuring delicate star constellations on a deep blue base. It is such a stunning quality, very lightweight and drapey and will be gorgeous turned into all sorts of stunning garments.
But I have paired it up with the Deer and Doe Bruyère shirt pattern. This is a classic shirt but with a feminine twist as it draws in at the waist and includes a gorgeous curved hem.
Classic and Mini Box
Another stunning viscose went into the Classic and Mini boxes this month. This one has a little more weight to it but still with lots of drape. It came in two colourways, blue with a white, grey and pale blue pattern or black with pink, green and cream. Both totally gorgeous and I’ve already seen some rather fabulous garments made out of this popping up on social media.
Lets talk about these fat quarters shall we? Aren’t they fun?! They are the softest cotton as well, in fabulous spacey themed prints. I have lots of these available over on my Outlet Shop right now.
Every box also included one of these lovely decorative 25cm zips. They have a star pattern down the sides and finished off with a metal star shaped zip pull. I can’t wait to put these to use, am planning (famous last words) on a YouTube tutorial to show you how to use these very soon.
Last but by no means least, the lovely Samantha Claridge created these stunning magnetic needle minders especially for these boxes, although she will be listing some in her shop very soon. Not only did she create these, she also turned them into an embroidery pattern which was included inside the magazine this month. A perfect craft to sit down with of a winters evening!
