Hi there ! It's Olennka. Advent is gorgeous time which I love to celebrate. I always have advent calendar and cherish every single day of this season. I want to show you how to make simple but realy magnificent advent calendar. I made it with Amy Tangerine STITCHED products. Here's the list of products which I used and materials which you need to make this calendar.small cloth bags (i sew it by myself, 15cm x10cm )clear stamps from Amy Tangerine collections Amy Tangerine embroidery kits Amy Tangerine slick writer pens scissors twine ink pad
Prepare 25 cloth bags. You can buy them or sew it. I sew it by myself, Rectangles made of fabric materials ( 10 cm x15 cm ) sew together on reverse, two sides and the bottom. Leave the top not sewed. Turn to the right side.
It's time to embellish your bags. I used clear stamp sets and ink pad. Make your own stamped bags. Use stitching stencils to personalize your bags. Mark holes with pen and embroider patterns you want. Use threads in every colors you want. Fill your bags with advent goodies. I used candies and tea, because my boys love sweets and I like tea. Tie every bag with a twine and your advent bags are ready.Now you can hang it as a garland or hang it on xmas tree. I made wooden tree with board and some sticks. Enjoy Advent season with your own handmade advent calendar ! Hope you like it and use to make your own advent calendar. xoxo Olennka
