My First Whimseybox

I didn't really even know that monthly subscription boxes were a thing, but after reading a blog about the Whimseybox, I looked at tons and tons of lists of monthly boxes to find one I might want (which turned out to be a ton of them - I mean how cool is the concept? A box of fun stuff that comes to your house every month? Uh, hello. Sign me up!). But I ended up going back to Whimseybox, which is a cute new craft every month!

October's craft was sewing, so when I got it, I thought, oh no, this is not going to go well.

The box comes with everything you need: instructions, supplies, and a few extra goodies!

I can totally craft. I'm artistic and creative and can follow directions, but.. Sewing is intimidating! When I was younger, I remember "sewing" on old hand towels, but that was all!

Adding the snap

But finally I decided to try it! And it didn't turn out so bad! I'm pretty proud of it actually. My favorite part is the little pin that comes with that says "Achievement Earned: Sewing!" It's like when I was a Girl Scout and earned badges!

The finished product!
Magenta on the outside, navy on the inside - so cute!

I got an email today that says November's craft is on its way and I'm so excited for the next badge and skill and craft!

If you use this link to get your own Whimseybox, you'll get $5 off your first month! (It's $15/month normally)

Happy crafting!


  1. Awesome job!!!! How fun! I may have to check into that! :)

  2. I love this! I have never heard of whimseybox before! I just signed up for the be nice box! (http://benicebox.com/) Great job!!

  3. Haha, you are so right! Although, what is, whenever you decide to go for it!

  4. Yes, do! November's box is an alternative fabric wrapping paper thing that you solar dye.. It looks cool! Although I might need sun to do it, and it has been raining here for days! Haha.

  5. Okay, the Be Nice Box looks stinking adorable. I am going to have to look into THAT!
