Santa Advent Calendar - free pattern
If you're getting a head start on your Christmas making, then here's another Christmas in July pattern for you.
This is the original Santa advent calendar I made in 1989, when my son was two and my daughter just born.
To this day, it has to go up on November 30 and by gosh, it must be filled by elves overnight with little treats so that on the morning of December 1, when the kids wake up, there is evidence of the magic of Christmas.
Of course, this only happens when we all manage to have Christmas together, but don't think that adult children will let you off the hook when it comes to family traditions.
It's pretty easy. All you need are some fabrics in holiday colors, iron-on fusible web, a bit of batting or a layer of flannel between, some ribbon, a few buttons, and a hanger.
And 24 tiny gifts. And an elf.
This is a very quick pattern to make.
