Christmas Advent Calendar

When I say I haven't done anything crafty for the last couple of months, that isn't entirely true.

I started this advent calender over 4 years ago. It has absolutely plagued me! It didn't seem that involved when I started, but attaching sequins isn't exactly the quickest process. I had some other sewing projects that I needed to start (and I don't like having more than one going at a time) so I spent as much free time as I could on it and I FINALLY GOT IT DONE!

While I'm kind of sick of looking at it for the time being, I actually do think it turned out pretty cute. I love the santa.

There is a pocket for each day leading up to Christmas and a little stuffed toy that goes in each pocket.

And then a large pocket at the bottom to keep all of the stuffed toys as they are removed. Pretty clever!

The kit can be found here.
