All of us sewists seem to commit to far too many things in December – whether that's sewing presents, making jazzy dresses for ourselves or simply just getting caught in the rush – so having the Christmas box available to us now means that we can get our jingle bells on whenever we have a spare moment.
I made do with a square piece of card from an old cereal box with some lines drawn on in pen to help me with hemming, but no more! No no no, now I have this little beauty I don't think I could live without it.
The fabrics are gorgeous and perfect for the season, the fat quarters are not only beautiful they are sewing themed too and the metal sewing gauge is one of the most useful tools to have in your kit (blog post coming soon). Plus... chocolate!
Not only that, these were the first boxes to be shipped internationally. In September I opened up the website to ship to America and the response has been amazing. Don't worry if you're not in the USA or UK, I will be adding new countries to the website in the coming months, so hold tight!
It's a pretty tiring but very exciting project that is due for completion on the 24th January... give or take! As such I am super excited to start planning a nursery and all the sewing projects that will go along with that. Don't worry, I'm not going to spam you with loads of baby projects but I thought I would share with you the first thing that I have made for baby's room.
Buying new stationary, getting a new diary and making the years timetable look so colourful and pretty, and of course, wrapping 30 year old textbooks in fun paper to try and hold them together through the year!
I had all my sewing bits on the table ready - small scissors (fabric was all cut out already so wouldn't need fabric scissor) pins, seam ripper and tape measure. But I had nothing to put them in. I didn't want to take my big sewing box as I had enough to carry so I ended up using an old make-up bag.
