The December SewHayleyJane boxes were all about staying warm and cosy when it's cold outside. I love going out for a winter walk when there is frost on the ground, even better if there is snow on the ground. But you gotta stay warm! So I sent out boxes full of super snuggly fleece-lined sweatshirt fabric in the Luxury Boxes and a lovely quilted knit fabric in the Mini and Classic Boxes.
The 'theme' for this month is Walking in a Winter Wonderland which to me mean means something seriously cosy and snuggly. Instagram has been full of handmade jumpers, sweatshirts and jumper-dresses so what could be better than sending a box of quilted knit fabric and fleece backed sweatshirt fabric. Perfect.
There are so many awesome blogs out there, and this list doesn't even scratch the surface - not even close! Some of the blogs I enjoy reading are ones written by people as a hobby, to showcase their latest make or share with the world a little about their lives. Then there are the big ones, the ones that are a legitimate career, or at are at least part of their full time work. I love following these for their amazing photography and because I find them inspiring and aspirational.
I had heard that a brand new shiny sewing magazine was under development and that it was produced by Rosabella of Sewn and Dominique. I had also heard that it was to be a magazine written by the sewing community for the sewing community. How amazing that would be!
We're getting all festive around these parts! I know, it's only the beginning of November but if John Lewis have released their Christmas advert it's officially ok to start getting excited. Unless you go by the Coke advert in which case I believe you still have a bit of time to go!
