Have you been wanting to sign up for the Sew Sampler Box from the Fat Quarter Shop? But you don’t know it it’s worth the money? Just can’t decide? Well here is a little review of the February 2017 Sew Sampler just for you!
All of the subscriptions come in this cute little box to your doorstep every month!
Opening the box for the first time is always so fun! I mean they have customized tissue paper for these! How fun is that?
This was my first peek and I was so excited! That pattern by April Rosenthal is TOO DIE FOR.
Okay back to the pattern. It is so simple and it looks amazing. It was designed by April Rosenthal and is called Crisscross. This is one that I can’t wait to do! If you want to purchase it you can find it here.
Up next is the Jolly Bar also by April. I love the color combination here. Perfect for the Crisscross quilt. You can find it here.
Fat Quarter Shop also includes a block ‘recipe’ with every box you get. It includes different sizing for the block. I couldn’t find these on their sight so they may be exclusive to the Sew Sampler Box. Someone correct me if I’m wrong! (:
This months box also had this two way retractable seam ripper. I like that it can be closed for storage so no one can get poked by it. BUT one thing that I noticed (at least to me) was that because of the springs on the inside, when you use it it flexes a bit with each tug. I will be sticking to my handy non-retractable seam ripper for now. (; But you can purchase the Tailor-Mate here.
Okay, these clips from Clover. You guys, I swear by these for binding quilts!! They are SO nice. No one is getting stabbed by needles, you don’t worry about poking your fingers, stepping on a stray pin or the kids grazing one while you bind quilts. They are AMAZING. Get them here. (They do have different options)
That Purple Thang. Shouldn’t that be all that needs said? (; Okay, when I saw this I was a bit confused, I mean what is that thang? Turns out it is incredibly useful. I especially am going to love it for applique. It pushes, pulls, pokes, fudges, turns and stuffs! (; You can get yours here.
Last but definitely not least is the Thread Heaven that came in this months box. It is small but oh so wonderful! I was a little skeptical of it’s usefullness, I mean wax for thread? BUT I recently started a hand quilting project and it has been great. (; Learned my lesson.
And that folks is all! This Sew Sampler Box was pretty awesome. Once in awhile yes you will get something that you don’t like or think you won’t ever use. But you are always getting your money worth! And Fat Quarter Shop has GREAT customer service if there is ever a problem with your order. If you have decided to subscribe to the Sew Sampler Box to have a little happy mail every month on your doorstep then go here. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for such a great monthly box!
If you do subscribe let me know what you think of your new supplies! I would love to hear from you!
