Advent Calendar

I decided to make an advent calendar for this festive period out of some vintage fabric I bought from ebay.
Unfortunately I didn't manage to take any pics of the process but I'll try my best to explain how I did it.

Step 1: I drew 5 different festive shapes, I plumped for stoking, star, present, heart and tree. Cut them out of the fabric and cut two shapes for each day.
Step 2: I added some ribbon on the front of the present shape so that it didn't just look like a box!
Step 3: Sew the two shapes together to make a pouch, allowing for an opening big enough for your selected chocolates.
Step 4: Fill with chocolate (obviously the best bit!) I used a mixture of chocolate coins, santas and lindt bears.
Step 5: I tied some string round the front of our kitchen table and then pegged the shapes on.

And hey presto......Advent Calendar!

Festive Greetings

  1. Umm... You missed out the step where you threw a glass of rose all over these lovely shapes due to an ill-directioned gesture!!
