Advent Calendar

I haven't been doing much scrapping lately since I've been working at
my second hobby of sewing.  This is an Advent Calendar I made for display
at work.  I used the Advent Calendar designs from AnitaGoodesign.
I used 2 yards of Red, Green and Gold Material,
and 1 Yard of white material.
An iron on stabilizer was using to prevent puckering.
The embroidery was done on my Viking sewing machine
using about 25 different colors of Isacord embroidery thread.
Green material and warm and natural batting is on the back.
The numbers are on pockets so that you can use a marker to count
down the days to Christmas.
I twisted red and green pipe cleaners tied with white ribbon to make the marker.
You could use real candy canes. 
I worked on this after work and on weekends, so it took me about a month to finish. 
This will make a nice addition to my home at Christmas. 


  1. Good job there. I always knew you had the talent. When are you going to make one for me.

  2. What a great job! You worked hard on that Advent Calendar. Now your boss needs to hang it up in the shop. Again, good job.

  3. This Advent Calendar is just precious. Great work, Judy
