New York, New Yo...
Not only is our advent calendar fun to look at, it was also really fun to make! We used our Tory wall organizer pattern for the background, and then got creative with the rest of the shapes. This is a great project to have some fun with all those scraps of fabric and trim you’ve been hanging on to, and it would also be a great project to have some fun with any little ones you have running around.
Various fabrics for background and tree-metallic is a good choice Felt for ornaments
-About 1 yard of a loosely woven fabric for main tree part works best for pushing ornament hooks through
Trim and/or anything else you might want to decorate them with-be creative!
buttons, glitter, the Be-Dazzler that has been collecting dust in your craft closet -Fabric/craft glue (optional)
-Little goodies to put in ornaments: flat candies and coins work great
