Advent Calendar

An advent calendar is a fun way for kids to count down the days until Christmas. It starts on December 1 and ends on December 24. I made this advent calendar last Christmas and I can’t wait to use it again this year. The idea came from the very creative allsorts, love that blog. Each felt pocket has a button closure,  is hand sewed and hung on a ribbon. Each day, the child may have a note of fun activities to read, a small toy to play or perhaps a candy to eat.

Here are the steps to make the pockets 

ACalendar 1

1. Cut this pattern out from a white felt square and add button.    Turn over and mark with a pencil where you need to fold the felt to make a pocket.

2. Fold up bottom and secure with pins.


3. Stitch around edge with thick red                     embroidery floss. Add some length of        

embroidery floss to secure around the button as  

seen in next picture.

4. You are almost done:) Just sew numbers 1-24  

on pocket flaps and hang on ribbon.
