As always I have put together a pattern inspiration post for you, a few ideas of how you might use the fabric that came in your boxes this month. I have to say, this list could have been a long one. The fabrics are so versatile and I had to stop myself from browsing all the gorgeous patterns that are available before my bank balance took rather a large hit!
I definitely think giving yourself a little gift is so important, you totally deserve it! It makes me so happy to think that I'm sending you all a little box of love each month and this month is no different!
Yep, gone are the days when Friday was the night for getting dressed up and hitting the town. I'll be honest with you I never have been a big party goer and I've certainly never been one to enjoy dancing in high heels all night. Much preferring to sit in a pub with a drink, good friends and lots of laughs.
I noticed that a lot of you signed up to my website but as yet, unless you subscribe to the packages you probably haven't heard very much from me, that is other than the same blog posts and website updates that anyone can see. But that is going to change this year.
Down on the south coast it's business as usual with our weather but I am keeping an eye on the news and hoping everyone on the east coast is safe and well. I think your best bet is to batten down the hatches, stick on Netflix and get your sewing machine out!
If you follow any sewing Instagram accounts you will probably have noticed a hashtag that has been doing the rounds the last week or so, you might even have done it yourself! #2017makenine came into being thanks to Rochelle New who decided to post her plans for 2017 and encouraged others to do the same. It has been so inspiring to see what everyone is planning to sew over the coming months so I wanted to get in on the action!
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.
