To say I'm not a huge fan of Christmas is an understatement. However, I do like making things that might hang around the house for short periods of time, especially if they hold chocolates. So I decided to make something to use up some scraps and pieces of fabric I had hanging around.
Firstly using some fusible webbing stuff I added some assorted squares onto some backing fabric. Then using my finest drawing surface, which in my case was the programme from Burnley v Crystal Palace, draw on an envelope shape. I used an envelope from a mini birthday card as a template.
Then I cut out and pressed the envelope shapes, added some embellishments and sewed up the edges. After a week of fiddling with that all I had to do was wrap a couple of sticks with some string to hang the envelopes on.
And there we have it, an advent calendar
Ready to be stuffed full of nice things
Now all I have to do is find things to fill it.
