Good grief there are only 64 days until Christmas, I am not at all prepared, I haven't even written my list for Santa! I have however been very busy making a special treat for my special little monkey, that looks a little like this
An advent calender that comes in the form of a kit from the wonderful Stitch Witch, they are just gorgeous and really simple to put together.
It all comes very neatly printed on one piece of fabric, which gets cut up into various sections and then attached as needed. To start with I cut out all the pockets, ironed flat the edges and top stitched the pocket top to create a neat edge.
Then comes the super fun bit of making up the sandwich and quilting it in your favorite style, finish by binding it in whichever method best suits you and add on hanging tabs as required.
