Christmas Advent Calendar: Love Birds

Hey! Tiffany again! Have you seen Deena's latest fabric line? Oh my goodness! I love it. I saw the fun reds and greens, and knew I had to make something christmas-y with it!  I was inspired by Pottery Barn's Felt advent calendar. I mixed some of the prints from Love Birds and some solid cotton fabric that I picked up at the fabric store.  Advent tree1 I wanted to mix textures, so some of the pockets have rick-rack, fabric flowers, applique, buttons, and all of them have the numbers appliqued on. Have I mentioned how I love wonder-under?  Well, i do. 🙂
  Advent tree1 The pockets are filled with everything from granola bars, fruit snacks, hot wheels, to service ideas, and fun family traditions (ginger bread houses, watching the nativity video, etc)

Advent tree1The few appliques I used are coming soon to Deena's shop at Design House digital. Aren't the ornaments and boot too cute?  The font I used for my numbers is Century Gothic. I used Sure Cuts Alot and my cricut expression to cut the applique.

Hope these gave you a little of inspiration. check back soon to see what else we are doing! See you soon!!  ~Tiffany
