One of my daughter's good friends has asked me to make her family
an Advent Calendar.
When she was married, I made them a tree skirt
and she just loves it.
I was honored to be asked to make this Advent calendar for them.
The only thing she asked is that it have pockets in which to put treats.
The rest was up to me.
I looked and looked at ideas and thought about several different options
and finally decided on using this pattern.
The only thing I'm using from the pattern are the patterns for the felt pieces.
The felt pieces have been glue basted to cotton fabrics
instead of felt. I will add a piece of batting in between
the cotton pieces for the pockets to give them more stability.
I like tedious work, but this was really tedious!
I was hoping there would be a file to use for the Cricut,
but no such luck.
My silk threads have been found in one of the many
boxes in my sewing room, so I am ready to start stitching
these pieces down.
Once they are stitched down, pockets will be sewn
and I will make a quilt on which to sew the pockets.
It's slowly coming together.
I am really on a roll working with felt these days!
