My son's new advent calendar is finally finished! It only took 7 days, lol. Now he can reuse it every year. It consists of 24 little bags with the number of the day, hanging on a dowel which is hanging with a ribbon. This year I put candy in each of the bags, next year I'd like to put in small toys and games or something less tooth-rotty.
Bags are machine stitched. The felt numbers are secured with a tiny bit of tacky glue and hand stitched with embroidery floss accent.
