Finally! After 3 years of embroidering, I've finished our Advent calendar. I embroidered all of the characters and animals for the Nativity. The numbers were painted on the squares, then sewn to the felt to make pockets. At dinner one night, we named things we could do as a family to celebrate Christmas. From this list, I printed them out and cut the them in strips. One for each pocket. Each morning, we move one of the characters to the Nativity Scene and read what we are going to do for the day.
The girls are loving it!
