I designed the pockets for this, and had them printed at Spoonflower

I have made two so far.  One for a gift:

And one for my girls, hanging full of treats:

It is big, about 2 feet by three feet.

Beautiful.  What a wonderful idea to come up with your own original designs to incorporate into this calendar. I'm sure it was a lot of work, but totally worth it for a family heirloom.  The pockets are so cute and whimsical, I know my kids would love it.

I have to say, you just don't see enough Christmas robots with gear wreaths!  Cheesy

I have loved advent calendars since I was a kid. The fact that you even designed the adorable fabric makes you a craft goddess in my book!

That's awesome!  I love this idea.  If I get myself in gera early enough next year, I might have to try it! (We just moved this year, and I think my sewing room may be the last one to get set up . . . )
