Woo hoo! This month we have discovered two new products which have become the initial inspiration for Box 26. We’re calling the-S box August 2018 Check Mate

The first innovation is washable, faux Leather Paper! Yes sewable, washable paper!!! Made of cellulose and latex,this high-quality ‘leather’ paperlooks like leather and is suitable to sew, decorate with paint, pens or print and to wash, which makes it look vintage/rustic. Washed at max 40°C, it shrinks by approx 5%.

Some of the recent month’s S boxes have been floral, pretty and traditional, so we reckoned it was time for a change. Leather Paper got us wondering what we could make and what would work well to co-ordinate with it. Then came new product  No 2…

Loved by Hazel, this month, is this unique, new cork ribbon that we sourced. She thought it might have some practical uses (extra grip anyone?) as well as being satisfyingly decorative; check out our Check Mate blogs on and get some early Christmas gift ideas that might work for the uncles, brothers, husbands and fathers in your life

So Leather and Cork led to the-S box August 2018 having a ‘masculine’ palette of Sepia, Tan, Ivory, Indigo and Ash across a pattern scheme combining checks, chevrons and subtle stripes

As always, the-S box is not designed to be a kit, but as ever, the-S box is jammed packed full of inspirational, innovative and useful, crafty goodies

This month, the-Stitcheryettes have touched base with their masculine side and decided that their Pick of the Month; has to be the Leather Paper, normally sold in a roll.1m x 50cm for £8.99, we have included two 25cm (approx) squares for you to experiment with.

Alongside leather paper & cork ribbon other August Contents include 30cms of checked poly viscose, 30cms of woven cotton stripe, 30cms of plain cotton canvas,    three covered check fabric buttons, two narrow checked ribbons, two wider checked ribbons, two stitched edge ribbons, an offset striped grosgrain, two woven chevron tapes, a decorative woven braid, a centre stripe tape, two               plaited leather cords, a plain 2mm leather cord, a 5m length of plain grosgrain,                             a crafty papier maché boxy frame, two split rings, a silver plated split ring             and a small piece of Velcro… WOW!!!

The total contents for the-s box AUGUST 2018 are worth over £32.00, so this box was a real gift for £16.95! Why such great value? because we love our lovely customers sew much…
