January's Habdash - The Sweetheart Box

A slightly belated Happy New Year to you all! We had a little break after Christmas to rest, recharge and re-organise after the festive mayhem! 
January is always hard going to get motivated so luckily I planned this month's Habdash subscription box back in November, which, is unusually organised for me at the moment!
We couldn't let January pass without sending you a Valentine themed box in time for you to make some gifts or decorations for the next big day on the occasion calendar.
This was a tough one to plan as I didn't want to go all out Red so soon after Christmas (and our fabulous christmas box) So I sugared it up a bit with some pink tones and a hint of floral.

After a lot of deliberation I chose some pretty fabric from the 'Happy Home' range by Sew Caroline for Art Gallery Fabrics. As always you get one fat quarter and it is 100% premium light quilter's weight cotton. The felt choices this month were Red, Mustard, Cerise, Baby Pink, Cherry, Fawn and Marl Fawn. We added two lots of Cerise to really give that bright hit of Pink. The Mustard shade picks up the yellow in the fabric perfectly.

This month's trims include a metre each of super cute die cut heart shaped gingham, adorable! This would be a great adornment to cards and scrapbooking as well as sewing projects. We also chose some delicate pale pink cotton lace and a lovely thick woven heart ribbon. 

This month's buttons included a selection of wooden hearts and flowers, painted floral and a pink polkadot heart. You will also find some cute heart shaped stickers which would be great on cards or gift tags. 
Why not re-use the twine we wrap the box and felt in too?...We love the fact that everything in our boxes can be used, re-used and recycled. Including the box itself!

We have a limited number of these boxes now available via our Not on the High Street store front, to purchase as a one-off box or gift. This box is now exclusive to NOTHS and our Habdash subscribers and there's only a few left.
They would make a fab Valentines gift for a loved one or friend. Who says you have to give flowers or jewellery?! The way to my heart is definitely craft supplies!

If you are a craft blogger, we want to hear from you! We are looking for some fab crafty peeps to help spread the word about Habdash. In exchange you'll get a complimentary Habdash Box for you to review and create with and we will link up to your blog from ours too as well as promote on social media.
