Getting festive

Here's a (slightly rubbish) picture of my christmas tree advent calendar, made from Laura's lovely hand dyed prefelt, and inspired by the trees she made for the Makers Market last month.
The tree itself has a wool prefelt backing with hand dyed leaves laid over the top, and I added a pocket in the form of a plant pot which can store all the baubles until the day for them to be hung. To save the tree looking a bit bare you could hang them the other way round and just turn them over to reveal the number as the days tick by. All that sewing, what was I thinking?
Happy 1st December!

If you're in London next weekend, pop along to the gloriously decadent Taste of Christmas for a whole heap of foody festive fun...
