Ooooh Christmas is coming...how exciting!
A beautiful advent calendar to make anybody's Christmas countdown extra special.
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.
This pretty advent calendar is made from two gorgeous fabrics, one is *Tilda in white with blue roses and holly, this is mixed with a pretty pink check along with lovely natural linen.
It has 24 pockets, numbered from 1 to 24 in numerical order in black permanent ink and trimmed with cute pink pom~poms.
I have hand embroidered the words "Christmas is coming ..." along the top with pink embroidery floss and decorated it with holly sprigs and pretty pink buttons, 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.
PLEASE NOTE ..... I have made these advents in small batches, so you may not get the exact one in the photos, the only difference will be the fabric pattern placement and the holly berry buttons, but it will be every bit as pretty as the one pictured.
The accessories shown in the pockets are not included
*Tilda is a craft brand started by the Norwegian designer Tone Finnanger , her fabrics are exquisite in design and colour.
