16  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Felt Advent Calendar (mmm Ghirardelli) on: December 16, 2008 11:19:50 AM
This felt calendar is inspired by a felt advent calendar I saw in Germany - and also by the crazy felt sale at Joann Fabrics over Thanksgiving weekend Wink



It's synthetic felt, I love wool but it is so expensive.  This worked quite well though.



I made the pockets big enough for my fav chocolate, Ghirardelli squares!



This is my first time using the blanket stitch, perhaps obviously. Smiley



And this is the most chain stitch I've ever done - I got a lot better at it.  I still haven't learned to cut straight lines though, lol... please forgive the wonky edges here.

I'm calling this done for now, because it is already the middle of December... but I do want to embroider the edge of the stable shape eventually, in brown I think.  A blanket or a chain stitch, I haven't decided.

Update: I've posted the appliqu pattern and general size information on my blog.

The criss cross bust looks tough, but totally worth it.  Very pretty !

I wanted a sewing desk with sides that fold out, so I found this old sewing desk on Craigslist.  The sewing machine was removed, so I got a piece of wood from Home Depot custom cut to fit the hole, and got to work.



I painted the whole thing red (it was initially a dusty fake wood color) and I re-upholstered the seat cover.  Then I got to covering the inside with my favorite things.



Comics!  And some fashion photos and stencils to fill it out. 





I saved my favorite ones for the top...





An Alex Maleev Daredevil, John Romita Jr. Spiderman, and Jim Lee Superman.  Don't worry, none of the comics I tore these out of were worth anything Wink

Thanks for looking!
