We have some exciting news! We have been working hard for the last few months to design and finish putting together a pattern to sell in our Etsy Store.
We are so happy to present our Christmas Advent Calendar Pattern:
The story behind the pattern:
When I was a young girl, my grandma made my siblings and me an Advent calendar made out of felt and burlap. Each day of December, we got to put an ornament on the tree and read a paragraph relating the ornament to Christmas. We would get so excited to put up the ornaments each day leading up to Christmas. When I became a mother, that Advent Calendar was passed down to my kids, and the tradition continued. When my niece was born, I didn’t think it was fair that she didn’t have the Advent Calendar, and since she lives far away, we couldn’t share it. For her second Christmas, I made her an Advent Calendar of her own inspired by the one my grandma made us all those years ago. My mom and I loved it so much that we decided to make a pattern for it so that others could make one for their own families.
The Advent Calendar is a special family tradition. The wall hanging made from this pattern would be a great family heirloom to be passed down through generations.
The pattern is available for instant download in our Etsy store. Make one for yourself or as a gift and get ready for the upcoming Christmas season.
As an early Christmas gift to one of our awesome readers, we want to do a giveaway!
