More Angel-themed Fabric Advent Calendars and Santa

Two more days and it will be December 1st. Normally the first day of using any advent calendar, first day of having fun and enjoying counting the number of days before Christmas day. I have made three more advent calendars.


First one is the angel advent calendar which measures about 52cms x 74cms. Pocket size about 6cms x 6cms. Machine quilted and comes with a bonus dowel for easy hanging. Sells for $54.95 in my online store.

The second one is the Santa Christmas Tree which is also an advent calendar. Measures about 56.5cms x 71cms. It has 24 Christmas trimmings measuring about 6cms x 6cms which includes a snowman, christmas present, jingle bell, candy cane, lamb, teddy bear, peppermint,star, mitten, filled christmas stocking, basket, candle and more. Additional embellishments have been added like stars, ribbon on the christmas present, a jingle bell on the jingle bell trimming, a bell on the reindeers neck, mini hearts hanging from the dove, hearts and embellishments on the christmas tree and snowflake trimmings and a big holly at the top. The trimmings have been adhered to a felt using a strongbond interface so they are strong enough to hang on the tree. Machine quilted and comes with a bonus dowel for easy hanging. Sells for $54.95 in my online shop.

The third calendar I have made is the Good Tidings of Great Joy advent calendar. Machine quilted it measures about 52cms x 74cms. It also comes with 24 trimmings measuring about 6cms x 6cms adhered to a felt using a strongbond interface so they are strong enough to hang on the tree. Comes with a bonus dowel for easy hanging and sells for $54.95 in my online store
The 24 trimmings still need to have a small string so I can hang them. I will post a new image when I have hanged all the trimmings. If you have any questions about my fabric advent calendars, please write to softtreasures@bigpond.com.
