Sew Mine Box Review by Hayley – September 2018

First of all I would like to say a massive thank you to Will at Sewminebox for sending me this beautiful box!

If you missed my live unboxing, you can watch it back HERE…

Sewminebox was designed for both enthusiastic sewers, and those that have no experience at all as the instructions are step by step and very easy to follow.

Each Sewminebox is £12.95 including post and packing on a rolling monthly contract, and to celebrate their first birthday we have been given an exclusive code which gives you a whopping £4 off! Use the code SMB4OFF at the checkout!

The contents

The box contains 2 full kits with everything needed to complete the projects. This month, a beautifully cuddly Floral Rabbit and a Hexagonal Trinket Basket!

For the Rabbit;

  • A large piece of beautiful pink floral fabric
  • A bag of toy stuffing
  • Embroidery cotton and needle for whiskers and a nose
  • Cutting pattern

For the Basket;

  • A small piece of blue floral fabric
  • A small piece of co-ordinating blue fabric
  • A square of padded interfacing
  • Co-ordinating blue thread
  • Cutting pattern

Other items;

  • A bobbin of white thread
  • Sewing needles x 2
  • Tacking pins
  • Step by step guide with pictures
  • Stitch sheet
  • And a bonus item of a beautiful well-made thimble, to add to my sewing basket!

I decided to try to make the Trinket Basket. I have done GCSE Textiles, and I am a crafty person by nature, although I will never profess to be an expert; I can sew, knit, crochet etc so this, while challenging, was a lot of fun. The instructions were super easy to follow on this one and took me just over 1 hour to complete.

Available on their website Sewminebox also have a large selection of other fun sewing kits, including an Owl, a Fairy, a cheeky Elf, some lovely Christmas brooches and lots more!

My Verdict

As a keen crafter, I am always looking for new thing to occupy my hands, and this box is perfect for someone like me who hasn’t got masses of spare time, but can occasionally can sit and put my mind to something! It can also be gifted too, just change the delivery address at checkout, so if you know someone who would love this, now is the time to use the fab discount we have been given!

When I have a little more time I am going to try to make the little rabbit!

Thanks so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed my review.

All my love,
