Back in November I noticed that we had some older Christmas fabrics left including Kate Spain's 12 Days of Christmas. These colors are more my Christmas color style so I came up with a project for it.
Instead of making a full 24 day advent calendar I thought about a calendar that could count down the 12 days before. Less pockets to fill and my kids wouldn't lose interest as fast (or so I am imagining).
I used this tutorial as the inspiration to make the pockets, minus the sashing. It was a quick project and I like that the pockets are are bigger than some other advent calendars.
To keep track of what day we are on I fussy cut one of the tags that come with the panel and fused it using double sided fusible to a scrap from the pockets. A clothes peg with a hot glued a piece of ribbon holds it on.
The winner of our Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day is Desi. She said "I am hoping to get stockings sewn, a quilt top pieced together, a doll sewn for my daughter, and a gift made for my husband as well. Wow-- just realized how truly much that is!" That's awesome Desi, you can do it!
I've emailed you Desi.
