Monthly boxes have been a popular craze for the past couple of years. Whether it is beauty, fashion or even a graze box; we love to be surprised every few of weeks when these land on our door step. The moment when the postman rattles the door; the excitement of opening up your package; the suspense of finding out what you have got this month! The adrenaline rush alone leaves us smiling from ear to ear for the rest of the day.
So you can imagine my excitement when I heard that there was a new monthly subscription on the block. One for us sewing and craft lovers. Ladies and Gents may I present to you, “Sew a Little Secret.”
‘Sew a little secret,’ is the brain child of The Owl and Sewing Cat haberdashery. Their mission is to get people interested in sewing and run many classes, and workshops, out of their shop which is located just off Eastbourne seafront in the UK. Not only do these ladies stock a full range of fabrics, trims and sewing machines, they also find time to design their own patterns and projects aswell. Sounds like there is never a quiet day at the office!
Every month you receive an exclusive ‘Owl and Sewing Cat’ pattern and all the materials needed to complete your project! All of this comes beautifully wrapped and delivered straight to your door. Whether your a beginner or a more advanced sewer, you can choose your skill level when ordering to make sure you receive a project suitable to your skillset.
This months secret sew was a hanging organiser, which will be an ideal addition to my flat. My mail will now be organised and no longer thrown in a corner to be forgotten about! This project is aimed at beginners and is a really quick and simple sew. The instructions were well written and easy to follow; which was a welcome change to some of the cryptic patterns I have worked on in the past. The material choice was great and I enjoyed creating something for my house that I can show off to people when they come to visit.
‘Sew a little Secret,’ is a great way to get started with sewing and its something the whole family can join in with. For someone who is used to being a selfish sewer, usually making clothes for myself, this project was something different and was really fun to make. If you want to sign up to ‘Sew a Little Secret,’ head over to www.owlandsewingcat.com and for only £18.95, you could have a little secret arriving on your doorstep every month.
Thanks to the folks over at Owl and Sewing Cat for creating such an interesting product. I’m looking forward to seeing what next months project has to offer.
Will you be keeping your hanging organiser a secret this month? Or will you be sharing it for the world to see? I’ll be keeping my eyes on Owl and Sewing Cats facebook page to see your secret sews!
