I have not completed enough of my advent to have drastically different pictures then my last post. But I will share a little more of my inspiration/planning.
To start, I have 4 children and one advent calendar. They each take turns moving the decorations into place. They are VERY good at sharing. I have been wanting to add another advent calendar to our home so that they could have two to share. Much less wait time. Of course 4 would be best, but I have a hard time paying for the ones they sell in the store when I know I could make one.
This one from Pink Chalk Studio really caught my eye.
I also conveniently had the one from Sew Mama Sew (this quilt-a-long) pinned.
I decided to cross stitch the numbers on my pockets, so that meant cutting and planning the layout immediately. Cross stitching 24 number may take me a while! I have completed 9 numbers so far (only 5 1/2 done when I took the picture).
Here is the basic layout of my advent. My pockets are 2 1/2" unfinished because I will be placing little ornaments in them. I also plan to add a star to the quilt. Stay tuned, because I am loving this project!
The above whit fabric is my background fabric. I have not bothered cutting it yet because I am still working on the numbers.
