Project 1: Advent Calendar finished!

You will have to imagine it tied up on the ribbon, but here it is:



To complete this project I used: 4 sheets of felt (2 red, 2 white), 4 embroidery silks, 24 mini pegs (painted gold with nail varnish on one side), one sheet of card, a gold pen, needles, pins, some treats and 1 metre of Christmas ribbon.  I embroidered the crosses (1 for each day) onto the shapes and then used blanket stitch around the edge. When I had filled them, I then pegged them to the ribbon. I am really happy!
