CMYfabriK Box is a new subscription that sends you a fun sewing project every month, along with all the supplies to complete it.
Your first box will include 1/2 yard of custom fabric, Washi tape, baker’s twine, and a pin cushion. It’ll also feature a cute sewing kit pouch equipped with measuring tape, scissors, a seam ripper, a spool of thread, needles, & pins. Every month after you’ll receive another 1/2 yard of fabric, Washi tape, baker’s twine, and any other materials required for that month’s project. Not into sewing? They also offer a “no sew” option!
Subscriptions are $25/month or less with multi-month commitments. — New customers can save 15% with coupon code “CRAFTYBUDS”!
Let’s see what’s in the July 2015 CMYfabriK Box!
Everything was shipped in a cheerful, bright yellow box.
There was no true “info card”. Instead you’re directed to go to their YouTube channel to view the project tutorial. It’s easy enough to find on their website or Facebook page, but it may have been helpful to include the actual url. Just a thought. 😉
Fabric – First up, the custom fabric! A 1/2 yard is included in every box, in a new design every month. I love the bold print & colors on this one! The suggested project for July is a fabric lunch bag. You can choose to make that, or just get creative and do your own thing. Totally up to you!
Sewing Kit – A cute handmade pouch contained essential sewing materials: Compact folding scissors, a set of 16 needles, and a seam ripper.
More Essentials – A handy measuring tape and a tube of industrial strength adhesive.
Pin Cushion – I love the fun colors of this cushion and the included pins. I don’t love that it was upside-down in my box when I unknowingly grabbed it and ended up stabbing myself with the ends of the pins that poked through the back. Ouch! A little thicker cushion might have been a better way to go. Or a warning on the box? 😉
Washi Tape – Every box comes with a new roll of washi tape in various designs. Mine featured a fancy gold, metallic pattern.
Even More – A spool of baker’s twine, a pretty button for the lunch bag project, and a spool of red thread.
Sticker – A cute sewing-themed sticker was also included.
CMYfabriK Box is a great subscription for anyone who likes to sew, or is interested in learning how. It’s cool that they feature a new custom fabric every month, as well as all of the other materials needed to complete each project. I do think it would be helpful to include a printed tutorial in addition to the YouTube video, just because some people may prefer to read how to do it instead of just watch. Oh, and maybe put the pin cushion in bubble wrap with a warning label? 😉
