Classic Sew Essential Box - December 2022


Staying in is the new going out! But just because you're relaxing on the sofa watching Netflix and snacking on a family size bag of Maltesers, doesn't mean you can't do it in style. The Hug Hoodie, part of Made It Patterns's Loungewear Collection, is a comfy, casual, relaxed fit sweatshirt with raglan sleeves, optional hood, a cool overlap detail and a curved hem at the back. The perfect "hang around the house" sweatshirt with a chilled-out vibe that you can easily take to the streets with the addition of a pair of snazzy trainers. Welcome to the cozy life! More...

  • Light Blue Drake Fleece - With a soft fleecy face on one side and a simple jersey on the other, this fabric is exactly what you think of when it comes to sweatshirting. Plush, soft and on the heavier side of medium weight, this fabric will be the warmest of the three options. And in a lovely light denim blue, it will become just the neutral basic that your handmade wardrobe needs. We're pretty sure you'll want to live in this hoodie from the moment it comes off the sewing machine!
  • Roasted Pumpkin Cotton Fleece - If you're a pumpkin spice person, this is the fabric for you. And even if you're not (like me, sorry), it's hard not to fall in love with this earthy orange hue. It just screams autumn to me and makes me think of hay rides and campfires. The brushed back of the fleece is soft and snuggly, and because the fabric on the thinner side, it will be a great transitional piece to wear as the days slowly get cooler. All in all, the perfect Fall choice!

the perfect box for serious sewist.

Needlesharp provides a beautifully curated box for sewing a garment. I love that the fabric is matched to the pattern. The tread and needle is matched to the fabric and all extra notions are included in the box. I have made many garments from these boxes and I am so proud of all of them. I have also discovered new fabrics and patterns that I might not have found on my own.

Zoe is my blouse!

Such an easy pattern and it looks so pretty on. Will be making another one very soon!! Loved the box and the beautiful rayon challis in burgundy. Such a treat and would have never bought this pattern. Thank you for such a great experience!❤️

Still learning after all these years
A few problems

I am struggling with the pattern. The instructions are confusing to say the least. Fabric is great.

Good box, but could be improved.

Not enough interfacing included, had to purchase more to finish dress. Also, the 'extra' was a card stock bookmark. Kind of silly and not needed. Hoping more for sewing notions. Great fabric and presentation though! Just needed enough interfacing and better 'extra' item.

My best make yet!

I recently finished my Wilder dress in Burnt Sienna Monstera Print Rayon Poplin from the Sew Essential box and I can’t rave enough about this kit! The fabric is beautiful and incredibly high quality, and since I wear a smaller size I have enough left over to make a True Bias Ogden cami, too! The included thread matches beautifully. And I enjoyed making the Wilder pattern so much that I’ve also used it to make three Wilder blouses. Just the pattern and project materials are a great value, but with my extra yardage and multiple pattern usages it’s a steal. I’ve bought a few Needle Sharp kits and am always blown away by the quality and style of the fabric and choice of patterns. Can’t wait for my next project!
