I love Christmas advent calendars!!!!
They make me feel like a child again. It is such a lovely feeling to wait each day to put a new ornament every day and finally decorate the whole tree at December 24th.
It is kind of magic!!!
As it seems every year I make a new fabric calendar 🙂 This was made at 2013. I must also post last year’s too 😉
My intention was not to make a mainstream advent. It will have 24 pockets and a Christmas tree with ornaments but mine will have something to stand out 😉
This is my new Christmas advent calendar!!!
There are 24 hand printed pockets around the Christmas tree. The border is a bit stuffed and so as the tree. which gives them a 3D texture.
I have sewed 24 buttons on the tree where you can hang the ornaments. But take a better look at the buttons. There are two red/white thread lines on the tree!!
This calendar has 24 ornaments. The 14 are letters that form the phrase “MERRY CHRISTMAS” and the rest are 10 woolen circles. Each letter is hand painted by me.
When you start placing the ornaments, if you put on the upper thread line the “M” letter and then continue as likewise then by the end of December you will get the whole phrase right in front of your eyes. The kids love it ! Especially those who start learning now the alphabet.
And finally you will get it all decorated!!!
Ready to start count town 😉
My best wishes,
