Advent Calendar 2010 – Happy Early Christmas Vicki

I showed you this sneak peek of a gift I’d made a while ago, but couldn’t show you the whole thing until I’d given it to its recipient. Thankfully this gift was given today, so I can finally share all the gory details!

It was an advent calendar for my friend Vicki, hence the over a month early Christmas Pressie – I think giving it on Christmas day would have been a bit mean and stupid as she’d have to wait almost a whole year to actually be able to use it.

I used Elizabeth’s advent calendar tutorial with a few variations to make the advent calendar, including a panel with printed numbered squares for the pockets, and not off setting the pockets in the sashing (although I wish I had, but I didn’t have time)

As I mentioned before, It was made on my Grans Bernina, and quited using the stich regulator (although the stitches weren’t that regulated as I had the wrong settings).

    I like your advent calendar, it is very nice looking, you did a great job on it.

    You should consider entering this in my sewing challenge blog here at, Paula's Sewing Challenges, and you could win a little something, something.

    Hope to see you there soon.
