Advent Calendar!!

It's done!!
I am finally done with my Advent Calendar and seriously- just in the nick of time!
I sewed my last ornament last night and couldn't be happier with how it turned out!!


Here are a couple of my favs
Angel (inspired by an angel ornament we had on our tree growing up)

Ok I really love them all

 I had a hard time making my ornaments small so if there is a next time making one of these- I will make my tree a bit bigger- but overall- it works!!
It took A LOT of time and work, but I am so glad I did it and think it will make many fun Christmas memories for my children!
Thanks again Jill for the great idea!!


  1. This is so dang cute!! I seriously want one of these. I will have to get sewing now to have one in time for next year...or I could just pay you to make one for me, right?!?

  2. I love it!! I have a felt nativity advent I made our first Christmas married and this is making me wish I had sewn it instead of just used glue like my mom did...

  3. That Tin Soldier is awesome! I might have to steal that and swap out one of my less favorites of mine. . .

  4. Great job honey! I'm so glad the angel will live on!

  5. Fantastic, Chels! I want to make one, but my decorations will not come out that great!

  6. This is so cute . I need to start on one for next year.
