Metal Meltdown : The Accessory Edit. Box no. 42 is the last box of 2019. The-S box December is focussed on all things Metallic.

After all the Christmas crafting you’ve been busy with, now is the time to make something for yourself. Something spangly for New Year’s Eve maybe? Or a last minute gift for someone else (if you must…)

For this last S box of 2019, we have sourced four unusual, metallic-based fabrics with varying elements of stretch. This metallic palette is not as straightforward as just Gold and Silver (though they’re important). Think matt as well as shine; think sheer and opaque; think texture and smooth; think mixing Pewter, Copper and Rose-Gold alongside Sapphire highlights.

Whilst collating the fabric and haberdashery for the-S box December, we have been keeping accessories in mind. We are loving the latest trend for hair accessories-add elastic and make up scrunchies galore for yourself and everyone you know! Add a small strip of lightweight wadding and make up a padded hair band, perhaps with a twist or knot. We’ve given you a frame because we love, Love, LOVE clip purses! What about using some firm Vilene to create a minimalist, fold-over clutch bag complete with thong and long button fastening? Perfect for a party !
