    I don’t normally do advent calendars, but this one is just too cute! I love the little pockets! And oh my gosh your felt colors are just gorgeous!!! I am thinking about making felt food for my 18 month old niece for Christmas, so you shop should come in very handy!

  43. says

    Okay, I’ll admit, I can’t even sew a button on, but I love to look at all your projects and this one is especially cute! I vow to find someone to teach me all about sewing after the busy holiday season is over. I would love to attempt projects like this! Seriously adorable (and my toddler would LOVE this!)


  44. kimberlee says

    If I won, I’d donate the sewing machine to refugees or victims of trafficking that are trying to learn skills to support themselves.

  45. says

    I love your advent calendar – the felt is so pretty and I like that this could be passed down to my children when they have outgrown the countdown to Christmas fun! I think the side winder is the greatest invention – so handy! My darling daughter is at the perfect age to start sewing and learn a useful life skill! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  46. says

    Supercool project! I’d like to do it with your red Bamboo felt and either paint the mini clothespins like candy canes or attach peppermint candies to them. Then maybe reuse the calendar for Valentine’s Day and do a set of clothespins with little candy hearts. I love this project…many thanks for sharing it! :)

  47. tiffany sexton says

    Ooohhh how awesome would it be to win! I would love to replace my $99.00 machine with this. The calendar is adorable :)

  48. Ann Maddox says

    Such a fantastic giveaway! Whoever wins this will have an early Christmas. And it would be great to use everything on Christmas projects!

    I love that idea! We have an advent calendar that we use already, but that’s a great idea for a more personal touch for gift cards.

  50. Ali Payne says

    Thanks for the give-a-way! That is a super cute idea for an advent calendar. I have been meaning to make some kind of advent calendar for my kids. I might have to try it.

  51. says

    This is SUCH an awesome giveaway! Thank you so much for hosting!
    I hope I win..I have loads of fabric to make awesome diabetic cases and such..but no extra money for a sewing machine :(

  52. says

    I love this! I will have to try my hand at this because this years advent calender will have tiny ornaments in it for a tiny Christmas tree that my 3 year old will get the first day!
