Sew Essential Box - September 2021
Staying in is the new going out! But just because you’re relaxing on the couch watching Netflix and snacking on a family size bag of chocolate, doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style.
The Hug Hoodie is a comfy, casual, relaxed-fit sweatshirt with raglan sleeves, optional hood, 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 shoes. Welcome to the cosy 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!
- Lightning Bolt French Terry - Lightning bolts aren't just for Harry Potter! This lightweight, rayon-polyester blend terry is the perfect fabric for creating a top that fits somewhere in between sweatshirt and knit top, with all the benefits of both. Soft, drapey, breathable - this fabric has it all! Plus, the novelty print is sew much fun. Paired with a black ribbing, it will be unique and stylish, just like you are!
- 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!
