Habdash Reveal: Woodland

Autumn is here and we've gone all out to give you a beautiful autumnal themed Habdash Box this month. Packed full of rich brown and green shades it's sure to get you in the mood for the season ahead!

September always sees a shift in inspiration for me, back to school, dewy mornings and the smell of woodsmoke creeping in to the evenings and early mornings. Autumn is my favourite time of year and green is my favourite colour, this box was a real joy to put together.

I turned once again to the 'Hello Bear' range of fabrics by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery. I've used prints from this popular range before and it was my first port of call for this box.
 The felt colours were chosen around the fabric, mossy greens, sables and terracottas.

The trims were harder this month. I wanted a little bit of luxury, so in the end I settled for a faux silk and velvet. These were quite deep colours so to tie in the lighter shade of green from the fabric I also choose a linen with a mint green edge. I picked up the foxy terracotta brown shade with some lovely fine jute twine.

The buttons are my favourite bit of this box, a cute fox, and wooden leaves and apples...and to add a little extra some basic spots and stripes.

Our next two boxes will be focusing on Christmas, with two very festive different themes coming up. may seem early but the next box is dispatched on 20th October and we all know Christmas is the busiest time of year for crafting! New boxes and subs will be available from 1st October. 

You can purchase one off boxes or subscriptions as a gift. If you buy a subscription gift, you can have the first box delivered to you and the option of delaying the rest of the subscription until after Christmas. We can also add a gift message for you!
