Advent Garland, originally uploaded by emerald lane.

Here is my first hand sewing project. My mom gave me this kit which came with everything to create this really cute Advent Calendar Garland. It has tiny pockets that I can squeeze in some candy or coins into each day as we count down to Christmas Day!
It was not easy to make, but I had some help from a friend and Jay even stepped up to the plate and help me sew. He’s actually really good at it, better than me even.
I really enjoyed working on this and focused on the fact that we will be able to enjoy this for years to come. So all that work was worth it!
