October BeeBox | Vinegar + Honey Co.

Nov 8, 2017

I have been a total slacker in sharing my BeeBox makes from Vinegar + Honey Co.  But I’m breaking the streak this month!  (I’ve even got a WeeBox to share with you too! Yay me!)

This month was the first time that they busted out their own custom fabric prints for the boxes and it’s so much fun and full of fall colors.  We each got two yards of this yummy dbp to play with.

Mixed with my hair color right now, I feel like I scream autumn in these photos.  Like, a lot.  I tend to gravitate toward plaids this time of year and this broke me out of that box a little.  And into a BeeBox?? ::terrible attempt at a joke alert::

I have had this mustard brushed poly in my stash for a long time now and I’ve been meaning to do something with it.  The problem is that I fear yellows against my skin tone.  I know, I know.  Redheads and mustard tones are supposed to be friends.  But I feel like it washes my skin out and I didn’t want to make an entire top out of it.  But using it as a complimentary color in a raglan is totally up my alley.

I joked the other day that I needed to make another M4M Mama Nina, so I could stop wearing my other one as much as I do, and throw something new into the mix.  This time, I thought it would be fun to give Nina it’s own knot, so I stole the directions from the M4M Kourtney and created a side knot on it.  If I do this again, I’ll be making it an even more dramatic knot height, because the Nina has so much swing to it and certainly can handle a little more knot-drama.  However, I do love the combo a lot!

Other than that, I made zero changes to the pattern.  Nina never needs much adjusting.  She’s pretty rad on her own.
