  1. January's box was a lot of fun! Every few month's I like o throw in something a little less traditional with our fabric choice and it's always a popular one!

    Primarily my aim for January was COLOUR and lots of it...with a little nod to Valentines day in the way of reminiscing my 80's childhood of creating 'Mix tapes' for the ones you loved!

     

     

    We sold out again this month, and for that i can't thank you all enough. I have to keep a lid on the amount of boxes i create each month at the moment, simply due to the fact that i have two kiddo's, a husband and a day job to also think about. It's a juggle. Putting together these boxes of crafty treasures is a delight each month and i wish i could give you all more!

     

     

    SO the fabric was the starting point this month, i saw it and couldn't resist it! It's bright, it's a little unusual but i hope you love it just as much as i do.

    I found the denim buttons completely by accident, i hadn't originally considered denim but i loved the way they looked with the red hearts so a 'Happy Accident' it was! 

     

     

    To finish off the button offering i added a few teeny Hearts from the 'Dress it Up' button range. They are really diddy and super cute.

     

     

    As always we included eight shades of our 30% wool felt. They are Rose, White, Charcoal, Fuchsia, Baby Pink, Orange, Candy and Buttercup.

     

     

    Feb's Boxes go on sale on Wednesday 1st. The theme for next month is Botanical. A complete contrast to this month! You can sign up to our newsletter to get a reminder sent straight to your inbox!

     

     

    Happy Crafting!

  2.  

    All our blog post's have been running a little late the last couple of month's! It's been a crazy busy November and December and I'm very much looking forward to putting my feet up for a few days!

     

    This month's box has landed on people's doormats (quite literally now, with our new slimmer boxes) and I'm loving your comments and pictures!

     

    I found some beautiful fabric from Art Gallery  that I just had to build a box around! It's from the Observer range by April Rhodes for Art Gallery and is a beautiful indigo Shibori style print.

    Blue, especially deep blue, is one of my favourite colours and so I couldn't wait to get started on this box.

     

     

     

    I was spoilt for choice with trim choices so there was an extra one in the box this month. There is a beautifully soft Navy Tulle, a petrol blue cotton lace, a deep blue floral hessian and a little bit of sparkle too.

     

    Felt shades this month are Teal, Marl Jade, Turquoise, Marl Turquoise, White, Royal Blue and two lots of Navy.

     

    The blue coconut shell buttons add a lovely muted vintage feel.

     

     

    Lucky Dip Sale Boxes are now live, these are £10 plus postage and will contain a random selection of felt, fabric and trims and buttons. Some from previous boxes where i've had extras. These will be in our original larger box and you can expect them to be jammed packed with goodies. Keep an eye on our instagram feed for more information!

     

    There is also up to 30% off selected Habdash Boxes and other items in our Not on the Highstreet shop too!

     

    New subs for January will be on sale on 1st Jan. January's box is 'Make me a Mix Tape'...sneaky peeks will be revealed soon! 

    If you want to be first in line to grab a subscription, sign up to our newsletter. There will be a very limited number up for grabs next month due to the volume of gift subscriptions purchased in December but I will try to make as many as possible available,

     

    Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

  3. It's been hectic, so i'm a little late with the blog this month!

    November's box was our second christmassy instalment and was packed full of traditional reds, snowmen, candy stripes and bells.


     

    My absolute favourite part of this month's box was the buttons (and Bell) selection. It really got me in the festive spirit packing them up!

     

     

    The fabric, a super cute Scandi style snowmen print, is 100% cotton from The Craft Cotton Co.

     

     

     

    We've changed the style of our box's this month, going for a slimmer, letterbox friendly box and it's been a hit! All the contents are the same, the only difference is the felt isn't rolled into a little bundle. This allows us to get all the fab contents into a smaller box and also bring the cost down. The postage cost has gone from 'Small Parcel' to Large Letter' so we've knocked the difference of the cost of the monthly subscription.

     

     

    Next month's box theme is Indigo. A (hopefully) refreshing box full of cool blue hues to kick start your post Xmas crafting projects. Subs on sale now!

     

     

    Plus don't forget, if you are after a craft Christmas gift then head over and check out our one off boxes or gift subscriptions.

  4. Due to Christmas being the crafting peak of the entire year we decided this time last year that we would devote two month's of Habdash to lovely festive craft supplies! October saw the first instalment for 2016!


     

    We broke from our Habdash tradition slightly this month and gave our subscribers two fat eighths instead of one fat quarter. I had four beautifully coordinating Christmas fabrics and I didn't want to put just one print in each box. Each subscriber got a lucky dip of two of these fab fabrics to play with this month.

     

    The fabric led the way for the colour theme for the whole box which is not completely traditional but definitely gives you a warm, fuzzy christmassy feel.


     

    The felt colours in this month's box were Teal, Charcoal, Cherry, Crimson, White, Dove Grey and a NEW shade, Marl Teal.


     

    I added some lovely East of India double faced Gros Grain stitched ribbon and a fun Festive print. this varied between Santas and Penguins but all were super cute!

    Last on the trims front was two metres of my fave....Ric Rac...White and sparkly Silver. I love the retro feel Ric Rac gives and it's one of my simple joys...

     

    The button selection this month was a variety of Christmas Stockings, Trees and Jingle Bells.
