Birch Fabrics manufactures a line of eco-friendly organic fabrics with a bright fresh modern look. I designed an Advent Calendar with their prints for Creative Homearts Club, it is a featured deisgn this month. Full directions are available. The birds and ornaments are sewn from National Nonwovens Xotic bamboo felt, so soft and easy to work with.
This calendar could also be easily adapted for year round use in a child's room by making the birds without hats and the number ornaments circles instead for days of the week. Alphabet letters is another option to make it a fun learning tool! Sew cute!
