Fiber Arts Friday – Handmade Holidays: Advent Calendar

3 Dec

This week I have been working on my traditional fiber arts projects. I’m crocheting stars, knitting a garland i-cord and trying to finish a pair of pants for my youngest child and a shrug for my daughter. But I don’t have any finished objects to show for all that, so instead I’ll take you on my sewing adventures with me.

As you may remember if you read my blog with any regularity, I’m a brand-new seamstress. I’m having a lot of fun and learning as I go in this new crafty endeavor of mine. This week, I made this Advent calendar for my family to use this year and in the years to come:

If you want to know how I made it, or possibly make one for your own family, read about it here.

When you’re finished with that, head on over to Andrea’s Blog and check out the rest of Fiber Arts Friday!

    Just beautiful! You’re good–I just glued and glittered one together this year. Not so impressive!!

    Cute calendar! The photo makes it look so warm and fuzzy, is it as tactile as it looks?

    Great job and nice to see some sewing in the line up this week. I still have my advent calendar from growing up. I should get it out because…it’s made out of felt (now that I think about it) and last I looked still holding together after “29” years. You have created a wonderful keepsake for your family.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
