December seemed to come out of the blue, and yesterday I realized that I had never gotten around to making an Advent calendar. After school and work, we headed upstairs and I hunted through the fabric stash for something that might resemble Christmas. The closest I could find were red chickens and owls and green stripes. If you squint from a distance, you'd never know those owls weren't little trees! I sewed strips to the backing and straight lines to make the pockets. Finished all edges with pinking or zigzag. Then the kids used stamps to number the pockets.
They were quite excited this morning to find that the elf on the shelf had snuck into pocket 21 while they were sleeping.
