Finished Christmas Advent Calendar

I finally finished my advent calendar a few days after the start of December. But that's OK because it's done and I love it! Here's a few pics.
I added fleece behind the buttons on Santa's hat to give them more dimention. The pockets had their numbers hand stitched on, then I played with the decorative stitches on my sewing machine on each pocket.
A close up of the hand stitched title.There is the finished wall hanging. I put a rod pocket at the top so I could hang it up with a dowel I got at Michaels. Then I put the little candy canes in each pocket for each child to choose as we count down the days.
Merry Christmas!

  1. The picture on the blog doesn't do it justice! You are so super talented and I can only hope that in the coming months I can try to pretend that I've got the skill you do as I attempt to finish mine! Thanks for the big start.
