Habdash Reveal - The Lilac and Lavender Box

This month's Habdash Box began in a slightly different way. Back in February I ran a competition on Instagram to celebrate Habdash's first birthday. The prize was a three month subscription plus the opportunity to chose the theme for April's Box.
Victoria from Butterfly Crafts was our winner and her chosen theme was Lilac and Lavender.

I couldn't be happier with the chosen theme, There are so many beautiful shades of purple and lilac it really was a joy to put this one together.
The shades of felt this month were Grape, Marl Heather, Cadbury, Cream, Marl Fawn, Raspberry, Light Stone and Lilac. The Marled shades give a softness to the usual solid colour blocking of felt.

This month's trims included an unusual woven chenille trim, cream crochet lace and a lilac stitched grosgrain ribbon.The buttons were a mixture of lilac and white mother of pearl hearts and simple wooden and lilac polkadots. I chose a variegated thread that bought out the pinky shade in the felt.

This month's fabric is from the Ombre Trends range by Heather Jacks for The Craft Cotton Company. It is 100% cotton, and beautifully soft and light weight.

If you follow us on social media you will know that our clearance sale of our craft shop has now gone to 50% off to clear the remainder of our shop stock. There's still some great bargains to be had, so be sure to check it out before its all gone!
Next month's Habdash theme is 'Bee Happy'. In tribute to the humble Bee, we have begun putting together a fun box of Bee themed goodies for you. Monthly subscriptions are available now and discounts are available when you sign up for a six or twelve month subscription up front. 

Don't forget to share your creations! We love to see what you make with our Habdash Boxes!
