I've gone for a contemporary approach to my advent calendars with no obvious Christmas-y fabrics but lots of gorgeous designs and colours.
The first has a red and white polka dot background with pockets made from red, white and blue Scandinavian folk inspired fabric pockets, the numbers are made with felt.
This calendar has another Scandinivain inspired fabric as its backing with matching and complementing pockets - picking out the gorgeous bright colours.
This is a very girly calendar with beautiful bird in a hedgerow fabric to form the background. Fabrics for the pockets include two Liberty prints and the numbers are made from soft pink felt.
The final calendar uses more boy friendly fabrics. The super soft green flannel sets off the pockets which includes the irresistible Rascal Rockets!
