Having had very little sewing in from customers for several weeks I put a special offer over on my Facebook page and then decided I would find something creative to do while I was waiting for work to come in.
I pulled out my Christmas box and found 5 Advent calendars that I had in my stock of 'to do' projects. As most of you will know, I have made an Advent calendar for each of my Grandchildren and know the pleasure each of them has when they get them out each year and have the little pockets filled with special treats. I know many folk cant sew so I decided I would make these 5 Advent calendars to see if anyone would buy them...at the very least I am keeping busy and enjoying being creative. They take ages to make and I've wadded and backed each one so I'm rather pleased with how each one is turning out.....
This was the first one I've finished...I've added tabs at the top so they can either just be pinned up or have a wooden stick put through the loops to hang it up by.
This is the second I've finished. This one was rather more complicated to make because lots of the pockets are made box style so are rather fiddly to do....but I rather like how it's turned out.
