Heirloom Advent Calendars

Handprinted Dates


Sewing into the wee hours!
Better late than never – made a productive start on the first of three advent calendar designs. Hand stamped numbers, a couple of ginghams, Emily Sutton’s Curiosity Shop fabric and lots of fiddly sewing!
The other designs will feature knitastic Lucy’s elf with hand printed verse, and another featuring a mouse with the beautiful “Twas the night before Christmas verse”.
These are heirloom pieces – a calendar is for life and not one cardboard chocolate filled Christmas! PS… sssshhhh! Suzy Smith editor of Country Living bought one of these last year!
