Sew Hayley Jane Subscription Box Review and Giveaway

Thanks to Sew Hayley Jane for providing a box for review and a box to give away!

Sew Hayley Jane recently reached out to me to do a little review here of her subscription boxes and since I know y'all love giveaways, how could I say no? She's been mailing these lovely dressmaking and craft boxes to UK sewists for a while now but she's just started shipping to the US (yay!) so now us Americans can get our grubby little mitts on her adorable boxes! There are three sizes available and this is the medium size, which contains 2.5 meters of dressmaking fabric, 4 fat quarters, and a bunch of little notions and gifts. The smaller box is the same but with 1 meter of fabric and 3 fat quarters, and the larger box has 5 fat quarters and up to 3.5 meters of dressmaking fabric--that's practically 4 yards, FYI--and also includes an indie sewing pattern!

In my box (the November edition) I had a lovely assortment of Christmassy fabrics with a red and grey theme--a pretty cotton poplin with a beautiful silky hand (back left in the box) and 4 coordinating fat quarters--some very pretty buttons destined for a Carolyn pajama top, about 2 yards of cotton lace trim, red Gutermann thread, a sweet donut magnetic pin cushion from Oh Sew Quaint, and some chocolates, not pictured because I ate them all. (Why is British chocolate so much better than American? Oops.)

Although this box is described as a "dressmaking and craft" subscription and therefore contains a mix of fabrics for craft and clothing, I can't help thinking that this box would be the perfect, perfect gift for a sewing mama. I think the fat quarters are intended to make little house goods--like a quilted table runner, for instance--but since the fabrics all coordinate, I imagine some adorable mommy and me looks coming out of these boxes, with mama getting a skirt for herself out of the dressmaking fabric and making some cute matching outfits for littles out of the fat quarters and trim. Lucky for me, I happen to know some babies and have a remarkable collection of children's patterns for someone with no children... but if you do have kids, this would be a wonderful box to get!

You can see all the things that subscribers have made with their boxes by searching #sewhayleyjanemakes on instagram and peek into previous boxes' contents by snooping the Sew Hayley Jane fabric care page. And good news! If you want to try out a Sew Hayley Jane box, follow me on instagram, and tag a friend in the comments of my Sew Hayley Jane post who you think would love a subscription to this box! One entrant will win the a Classic sized box--although not the same one I got! You'll have to wait and see what will be in yours... :)


ps: i love that the box supports indie companies, too--you should definitely go read this blog post from magnetic donut pincushion maker Oh Sew Quaint about her experience starting her own small business! so inspiring.
