Block of the Month – December 2017

Every month we offer 15% discount on one of our popular designs and this month it is the Pill Box crown block CB168F.
This is a very familiar shape often referred to as the ‘Jackie O’ or ‘Jakie Kennedy’ pill box and can be made in a variety of materials. The block features a hollowed base so you can create that lovely rolled bottom edge and it is also a five part puzzle block to make it nice and easy to remove the block from the material.
If you’re not familiar with five part blocks, don’t be put off, it’s a simple method of dismantling the block into sections so that the block can be removed easily. Without this feature, the material has to be stretched off or in some cases cut in order to remove the block in in a hat like this that would clearly spoil the look!
We love the hat below made by Isabel Terroso Torres and you can clearly see the detail of the inside.
