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
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.
4. You are almost done:) Just sew numbers 1-24
on pocket flaps and hang on ribbon.
Enjoy and Happy Holiday!
