Here’s one of the projects I’ve been working on for the Fabric Mill. This cute advent calendar is made from a panel (Happy Christmas by Northcott fabrics) and is quick to make. I love how easily it came together. (I just wrote up a tutorial for it over on the Fabric Mill's blog.)
The advent calendar that my family currently uses is this one:
I made it two years ago- here I am working on it while it hangs on the design wall-
I first blogged about the calendar here. My kids love it and it gives me warm and fuzzy feelings since it is similar to the one we had when I was a kid.
We have a slight problem however. About 10 of our little felt ornaments are missing. Gone. We suspect it was our helpful youngest son who hid them somewhere – never to be found. So currently we can count down to about December 15th and then I’ll have to pull out my felt scraps and glue gun and see what I can come up with!
Does your family have an advent calendar? What do you put in the pockets?
