Hi everyone,

  So many crafty projects on the go, so little time! I hope you don't mind but I used my phone to snap
  These pics as I wanted to get it posted for the weekend.
 
  I settled down this week to make an advent calendar with a difference for my little girls.
 It's nearly finished so I thought I'd share how far I've got, so you can still have time to make one
 Before next wkend...
    
     
                                 

    Firstly I cut out a template of a stocking just big enough so when stitched together it would
   Fit a couple of penny sweets inside. Fold your fabric in half and pin your template, cut around
   And you should have two perfectly matching stockings. 
   I then hemed the top, then placing the fabric wrong way round I then machined them together, 
  then turned them out the right way.

       
                                 

   Mix up your fabrics for a real vintage feel! Now I'm not kidding this is a timely craft and to make
  The 24 stockings did take me a couple of hours, but it will look so pretty strung accross the mantle
  When it's finished and can be used year after year!

                                    
                                  

      I've found some pretty beaded ribbon in my craft draw, and now I'm just waiting for my mini
     Pegs to arive so I can clip them to my ribbon. I will take a snap and post it when it's hanging up.
     In the mean time... Get crafting...
