Zero Waste Sewing Box

OW-ZWasteSewBox-Sml-PP

Regular price £39.99

Note - this is a pre-order. We aim to ship all boxes from mid-November, but can also hold them back for you.

A fantastic present packed with ethical crafting goodies worth up to a whopping £82, and sumptuously tied in a bow.

From novice to advanced crafters, these beautifully wrapped Mystery Sewing Boxes are packed with materials for multiple sewing projects - all with a mindful, sustainable twist - that will get creative juices flowing.

This box is dedicated to experimenting with zero waste making. Ok, so you have us... nothing is ever completely "zero waste". However, what we have curated here is a sewing goodie box that will help you contemplate what low impact making is all about. From the fabric to the trims to the packaging - how can you have a socially and environmentally positive impact on people and planet when you sew?

We have a standard and a large size box. See what's in them...

What's inside the Standard Mystery Sewing Box?
  • One voucher code, redeemable online against a downloadable PDF pattern (designed for zero waste) from our partner
  • One metre of ethically-sourced recycled fabric from Offset Warehouse, 140-150cm wide
  • One 275m reel of organic cotton sewing thread
  • One skein of hand-dyed recycled ribbon
  • One packet of byproduct buttons
  • A sweet Fairtrade treat to keep you warm and your energy up and while crafting
  • Wrapped up in an organic cotton ribbon that can be re-used

For just £25 more, upgrade your box to the large size (worth £82) to include an additional metre of fabric and different trims...

What's inside the Large Mystery Sewing Box?
  • One voucher code, redeemable online against a downloadable PDF pattern (designed for zero waste) from our partner
  • Two metres of ethically-sourced organic fabric from Offset Warehouse, 142cm wide
  • One 275m reel of organic cotton sewing thread
  • One skein of hand-dyed recycled ribbon
  • One packet of byproduct buttons
  • A sweet Fairtrade treat to keep you warm and your energy up and while crafting
  • Wrapped up in an organic cotton ribbon that can be re-used
Is each box different?

Each box - Standard or Large - will come with the same items, though there will be differences in the hand-dyed ribbon due to how it is produced.

If you are purchasing a box for the same recipient, why not consider our Block Printing Sewing Box or Social Sewing Box?

What will the box look like?

The contents of the box described above (but not shown for that surprise!), will be beautifully wrapped in recycled acid-free tissue paper, tied with undyed organic cotton ribbon (to be re-purposed) and placed in a part-recycled corrugated cardboard box. The box will then be secured with a sticker or tape and sent directly to the recipient without any additional wrapping.

Please note, the final images show our Mystery Sewing Boxes from 2020; they contain similar products but contents will be different (see above). Please also note, we no longer use envelopes and gold stickers in order to keep the bundles as minimal and recyclable as possible, so the images are from previous years.

What are the patterns like?

We are thrilled to partner with this particular pattern brand for our Mystery Sewing Boxes. Their ethos is one of value for every single item you use, and appreciation for working methodically to achieve a low impact wardrobe. With a focus on slowing down, the patterns from this brand work fabulously when accompanied by our ethical fabrics and trims.

Due to the nature of "zero waste" in sewing, the patterns are designed to be looser fit, and details can be removed or added as necessary.

We have designed the boxes to provide you with options - we acknowledge not every style and body is the same - though have taken on board recommendations from our pattern partner so that you get the most out of your materials. Do not feel obligated to use the contents as you see them, but instead as motivation to consciously consider how you sew.

The voucher included in your box is redeemable up to the value of €16. If you choose a pattern that costs less, it just means you have additional funds in your basket for something else. There are styles to suit many styles and fabrics.

Please note:
  • We pre-make our boxes, which means there is a limited quantity.
  • Although not essential, we recommend that Mystery Sewing Boxes go to homes with sewing machines, or access to one, as these will be required to make the patterns.
  • Vegan & vegetarian: due to the theme of this box, the "byproduct buttons" are not vegan-friendly, so in the instance that you have a vegan lifestyle, we can happily switch this item out for a vegan-friendly alternative. The treat is also a non-vegan hot chocolate - if you would like this to be left out, please leave a note in the comments box at checkout, however we do not have an alternative option to replace it with.
  • The Standard Box is worth £49, while the Large Box is worth £82.
