pocket advent calendar tutorial

I was excited that Gwen asked me over today to share a Christmas tutorial with you all. I’ve always wanted to make an advent calendar for my girls, so when Gwen asked me for a Christmas project, this was my chance.

    Very cute Anna! I love the combination of fabrics – not Christmas, but still festive!

    And as always, your sewing is so neat!

    Wow, another great tutorial! I might have to make one of these next year when Lauren’s a little older. Love the Heather Bailey fabric you chose!

    Very cute & I see no sugar involved! Great for my 5yr old grandson. Last year he was so hepped up on sugar after a Holiday party he attacked out Yule tree while he was in the throws of a sugar rush.

    love it. I need to do a new advent calendar, since mine is FOREVER old and so ugly that I refuse to put it out. Poor children!

    This is great Anna! I love the little cards you put in there too. And so fun that you shared a printable version with everyone.

    I love this idea for an advent calendar. I think when Brice is a little older I want to do this with him. I love remembering what the season is about (with the cards to do things, like donating toys and the such) and this is a great way to do those kind of things.

    Great fabric choices!

    Hi Anna, I have been a follower for quite a while and really love your blog and all that you share. And this advent calender is awesome! I just wanted to let you know that I have linked to this tutorial on my recent post showing decorations I hope to finally make this year :-). I’m still finding my way in blog land so I hope it was ok to do this. Please let me know if not. Thanks Anna. Tanya xx

    I was going to try and comment on your whole tutorials page, but alas, I am not super computer smart. What a beautifully laid out and organized tutorial section. Admirable. And the tutorials themselves! I feel like I’m a little old for an Advent calendar… but I LOVE IT. Maybe I’ll just make it my normal calendar.
