I propose that we work on projects from January to November so that you will have at least one Dolly Advent Calender to give or enjoy for the Advent Season. I hope to share with you several projects over the next year, that even the most novice of crafter and seamstress can create to fill your pockets with handmade dolly delights and fun finds! Maybe you want to get together with a friend or family and make one to exchange, home school families, girl scout groups, churches, community groups are welcome to join in the fun! I will provide tutorials here on my blog, links to free patterns to use, continue to post dolly fun finds and pocket ideas all year long, you just have to join in the fun!
To begin with I suggest you start by purchasing a 24 pocket (or smaller for my friends doing 8 pockets, hey here is a thought, how about even a 12 days of Christmas Pockets, if the thought of 24 is overwhelming...the choice is up to you!) We got ours at Walmart for under $7. I know they are available in both Canada and The USA. Buy one as soon as possible and Hang it up now. Find a spot to hang it up so that you can fill the pockets as you create or locate items for your calender for next season! You can wrap as you go or fill and wrap just before gift giving.
