I’m joining the Celebrate the Holidays blog tour hosted by my friend Sewing by Ti. More details about the other great blogs on the tour are at the end of the post.
I have a dream count down calendar in mind for my family. In my imagination I see village store fronts decked out in holiday cheer; handmade out of wood with little drawers and doors to place all my count down goodies and messages. That dream is yet to be realized, so in the mean time I’ve created my own version in my handmade wheelhouse, fabric.
I used the Advent Calendar pattern from Zierstoff Patterns. There are options for little mittens, stockings, or sachets included in the pattern. I thought the sachets would be the most versatile and I like that I can close them up to keep the goodies hidden from peeking little boys.
I had just enough of the Michael Miller fabric left from my Sewing Portfolios Ambassador project to make up the Advent calendar. I like that all the fabrics go together and to be honest, I really needed that kind of easy.
Having an Advent calendar has been a missing part of our Christmas celebration, so I’m thankful to finally have one after putting it off for so many years.
You’ll really want to see all the inspiration this month from so many of my sewing friends.
As always, thanks for reading today.
