the-S box May 2019

Box no 35 : the-S box for May is inspired by the all the beautiful sunny weather that we’ve been enjoying “S is for Sahara”

The palette for the-S box May is warm and spicy combining shades of rich camel & hot sun with neutral sand tones. Pattern is influenced by the geometric tile designs from nearby Morocco. The cotton rich, mixed fabric types and textured tapes in this-S box lend themselves to mixed media projects and will inspire you create something exciting and new

This month the-stitcheryettes are loving… The cotton-mix, rich jacquard fabric. we love the intense, saturated colour. we love the subtle, woven geometric pattern. we love the weight…

Oo what shall we make ? We definitely need a new sunglasses case and what about a book mark or two? A lap-top cover? A bread basket for alfresco dining? A handy shopping bag ? Shall we go on?

Don’t forget to show us what YOU make

Pick of the Month…For May, we are all agreed that our favorite trim is the gold sparkle trim. It looks like glittering sand reflecting the searing, hot rays of the midday sun. We see it adding glitz and glam to a card-making or journal-ing project or what about cutting it into spiky triangles randomly glued to a phone case or trainer toe-cap

As always, the-S box is not designed to be a kit, there are no instructions but as ever, the-S box is jammed packed full of inspirational, innovative and useful, crafty goodies.
