Advent Calender...just in time

I finished this last night.
I couldn't even begin to tell you how i made it. Trial and error and lots of unpicking!
But just in time for today. Literally! I 've put the days in number order (except Christmas Eve) as mine are still little and learning their numbers and i thought it might help them remember their order visually seeing them like this.

Not sure what i am going to fill them with yet. I'm thinking I'll just add the treats a day at a time so they are not raided all at once by little fingers! Maybe some stickers, Christmas colouring pictures, biscuits and chocolate buttons or maybe a card with something we could do that day, like put up the Christmas tree. Great ideas other than just chocolate, after being inspired by the ideas over at Green is the New Black. They have the cutest Advent Calender.

So cute!! Well done! I did a little felt pocket advent garland this year. It turned out really sweet. Lu had an idea to make it a little scavenger hunt with notes in the pockets instead of treats. Luckily I've got another year for sure to think more about it! oxox
