This post is dedicated to Jenny for telling me that my book signing post was "so last month" and I needed to update it!
Since Will and I are spending Christmas in Europe we did Christmas with my family during Thanksgiving. There were 3 major projects I had to finish and I'm happy to report that they all got done (although I was cutting it really close!).
First up - Shay's Advent Calendar. Growing up we loved Advent Calendars!!! Even the cheap ones with the bad waxy chocolate were just so much fun. When I saw this project on Oh Fransson's blog I knew I had to download the pattern from SewMamaSew.
Fabric: Be Merry by Riley Blake (10 different prints, fat quarter of each)
Modifications: I used Prints for all of the pockets fronts instead of mixing with solids. I also used 4 solids instead of the 3 the pattern called for. To save time, I did not stitch around the fused numbers (I used Steam-a-Seam 2 to make sure they were really stuck on).
