After years of thinking "I should make an advent calendar," I finally made one.
Actually, I made two. One to keep and one to gift. It's not really all wonky- it's just stuffed with Christmas goodies.
I adapted this tutorial. I used straight sashing instead of off-setting the pockets. Appliquing the numbers seemed like too much work, so I ended up cross-stitching them. Which was more work. But, I really like the look of them.
Oh, I love all those little lined pockets. And the binding. It's all better than I pictured it.
