DIY Fabric Advent Calendar

I know this is coming a couple days late, but oh. my. goodness. I am so glad it’s December! November was a pretty rough month for me – I was sick for the entire month, had a bunch of car issues, computer issues, had stuff stolen from my apartment, had to deal with being charged for “smoking” in a hotel room – it just felt like it was thing after thing and I was completely exhausted. So even though I have sooo much I have to do before heading back to NY tomorrow for the month, I am SO happy to just be in a different month!

Manda shared a beautiful advent calendar last week and I’ve got one more option for you! Especially for all my fellow procrastinators out there that haven’t made an advent calendar yet! This takes some very basic sewing skills and a couple hours of work. But I love how simple it is and how it will last for years!
