When curating a box, sometimes I start with the fabric, sometimes the pattern. Things usually fall into place one I settle on a decision. This pattern was the foundation for the whole box and everything just fell into place (even if the fabric got stuck in a shipping container)!
Sugar and Spice by Lindsay Wilkes for Riley Blake Designs
Due to shipping delays, this bundle of fabric was actually my Plan B for this box. Now that I look at it, I think I might like it better than my Plan A. The postal-style stripes and envelopes are just 100% on theme. In fact, I’m shocked I didn’t pick this in the first place. See what I mean about things falling into place?
Polka Dot Mini Scissors
I think the sock gnomes in my house have a giant hoard of small scissors like this somewhere because I lose them constantly. I sent these cute scissors because if you’re like me, you need a new set. If you have remedies for the sock gnomes, send me a DM.
Love Notes by Paprika Paperie
These notes just make it stupid easy to leave a kind note for someone. And look! They have the same postal stripes as the fabric. I hope you can take the time to send a thoughtful thank you or love note to the people closest to you. In the words of my 4 year old–it’s easy peasy!
Candy Club Cinnamon Bears / Trolli Strawberry Puffs
Cinnamon bears are a bit of a local favorite here in Utah, except we like them best when dipped in chocolate. I thought that might be a little “out there” for some folks so I stuck with the basics for this month.
I started by planning on the cinnamon bears, but got so many new subscribers that I had to add more treats. Not a bad problem to have! Since I couldn’t get more cinnamon bears, a handful of people got the strawberry puffs. I sampled both and they both passed my deliciousness test.
Next month, the theme will be Sewing Room. I love sewing sewing-themed things. It’s so meta. So if you have been searching for a subscription box for quilters and are looking to fully embrace your sewcialista status, buckle up for next month! Subscribe here!
