Habdash Reveal: The Christmas Box

This month has been a super busy one! Habdash is becoming more and more popular, which makes my task of getting all the boxes prepared, packed and out on time a much more time consuming task! 
Each fat quarter and felt bundle is cut and tied by me and all the ribbons are cut to size and bobbins would be me too. It's such a joy to put the boxes together, it really doesn't feel like work.

October's box was our Christmas Box. I deliberated over the timing of this box for ages...September was far to soon, November seemed too close when you consider you need plenty of time to think about what you want to create and then actually make it. So October it was, maybe too soon for most aspects of christmassy fayre but when it comes to crafting, we need to be slightly ahead!

I love a traditional Christmas, so i decided to go full on Red for this box, with a hint of natural as a highlight. The felt shades I used were Cherry, Crimson, Red, Light Stone and Cream. All can be found in the Felt Section of our Craft Shop.
A few months ago I found some fab Snowflake print fabric which I fell I love with. I tied the rest of the box in around this Snowflake theme, including Snowflake Buttons and Snowflake Ribbon.
The Wooden Christmas Tree Buttons are always one of our Bestsellers at this time of year and the natural wood colour really complimented the rest of the box.


I also included some fabulous quality East of India Thin Stitch Ribbon and of course I couldn't have a festive box without a 'Merry Christmas' thrown in! This particular Merry Christmas Ribbon will be available to purchase from our shop very soon. The Chevron ribbon is currently a Habdash exclusive.
I finished off all the boxes with a little extra in the form of one of our Wooden Tags. These are available in either Bauble, Reindeer, Angel or Christmas Tree shapes. The are plain untreated ply wood and are perfect either as they are or great decorated. I shall be letting the kiddos loose on a few to hang on our tree!

If you want to subscribe, new subscriptions are now available. Next month's theme is Frosted White and will be dispatched on 20th November. It is set to be a beautiful collection of white on white tones, sparkle and luxury.
