This advent calendar, as with everything I make, is made to last, it is sewn with love using high quality materials and it will be hung excitedly year after year and for generations to come.
It's made from gorgeous red and white printed fabrics It has 24 pockets, numbered from 1 to 24 in random order in black permanent ink and trimmed with cute red pom~poms.
I have hand embroidered the words "Christmas is coming ..." along the top with red embroidery floss and decorated it with holly sprigs and pretty red felt 'berries' the edges are finished by hand with patterned handmade bias binding.
The pockets measure 8.5cm x 7.5cm (3.3" x 3") approx. The advent measures 55cm x 65.5cm (1' 9.7" x 2' 1.8") approx.
The back is lined with cream heavy-weight textured cotton and has a cotton batting layer in between, giving it a lovely quilted quality, it has have two velvet ribbon loops sewn on the back for hanging.
