Remember this? It's the Advent Calendar I made last year, consisting of numbered felt "pockets" each holding a square of Ghirardelli peppermint bark chocolate and a paper dangle. Each day you would eat the chocolate and hang the dangle from the button, so you could see how close you were getting to the big day!
After a flurry of requests for a pattern, I am happy to oblige. This required pulling out the first of the boxes of Christmas decorations a bit early, but since I'm already in that frame of mind, so be it. Anyhoo, here ya go...
And a quickie tutorial...
The numbers were freehand sketched first with a disappearing pen. I strung mine on a long strip of red homespun with shorter lengths tied between each pocket. It wasn't even necessary to sew them on, I just loaded them up, closed the flap around the homespun and looped the thread around the button and voila!
Have fun kiddies!
