Inspirations All Stitched Up! – September 2020
It seems we’re having a felt festival here at Inspirations lately! After bringing you the cutest felt animal families imaginable last week, this week it’s time to bring a little festive felt to Christmas. ‘Sew Your Own Felt Advent Calendar’ shows you how to create an advent calendar filled with tiny toys, guaranteed to bring squeals of delight each and every day in the lead up to 25th December.
This new book by Sachiyo Ishii includes patterns not just for the tiny calendar with numbered pockets, but also for the 24 adorable little toys which reside in each pocket. Peeking out you’ll find bunnies, owls, gingerbread men and teddy bears, each with a distinct little personality sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
The projects are quick to make, with detailed instructions and full-sized templates for cutting out your felt and putting each toy together. If you can manage to convince the happy recipient to return the toy back to its pocket-home after Christmas, this advent calendar will become a family favourite year after year.
