I made the felt advent garland  from the pattern over at Allsorts:



It's the first Christmas decorations we've put up.  Tomorrow we get out the advent candles.  This happens to be the only available place in my house for it where our children will still be able to open up the envelopes every day:



The pattern has paper dangles, but I had to make my own little embroidered felt circles to hang from the red buttons.  I also used various vintage and vintage style buttons for each pouch.

This is all also in my blog:  http://iamsusie.blogspot.com/2007/12/december-1.html

Thanks!

The pillows are from Ikea.  I think they recently discontinued them, but they have a more floral version right now.

That's great... I love advent calenders (I have two homemade ones Tongue )

The pattern is the perfect size for those Ghiradelli chocolate squares. like these: http://www.ghirardelli.com/products/images/products_main.jpg

 I got a couple of bags of their holiday assortment.  Each day has one candy and a felt dangle.  We have some other Advent calenders too, but this is the only one made by me.

These are wonderful.  It's funny, when I saw them I thought to myself that looks like IamSusie's stitching and I looked and saw that it was yours.  Great work as usual!!  Lucky family!!

Thanks, Atsuko!  Smiley I'm not sure what it is that makes my stitching identifiable, but when I saw this garland pattern posted, I felt I had to make it, even though there is no room in our house for any more Christmas decorations.

I dunno, but your stitching is like a signature.  You're the only one in the world who felties look better than the Japanese examples.

I am obsessed with blanket stitch.  I almost wanted to pull out the whip stitches on the pouches and do blanket instead, but sanity prevailed. Cheesy

That's great! I made one like that too (also inspired by All Sorts) but your's looks a lot more like her's than mine does. Soon as it's light again I'll take a picture & post to compare.
