Alice Caroline Fabrics and a Christmas Cheer Advent Calendar

Have you been introduced to Alice Caroline?  You know I love Liberty of London fabrics and one place that stocks a wonderful and beautiful range of these fabrics is Alice Caroline fabrics located in the UK.

Alice Caroline has long been one of my favourite "Go-to" stores for Liberty fabrics to add to my collection.  With their range full of the latest Liberty fabrics available as well as fabrics such as Interior and Linens. Kits, Patterns and even  scrap packs and notebooks. This beautiful bundle of Christmas inspired Tana Lawns was perfect to create one of my latest patterns with - the Christmas Cheer Advent Calendar.

Traditional Reds and Greens are my "Christmas Colours" and these prints were perfect with their striking prints and patterns.  These little pockets are perfect for hiding special treats as you countdown each day till Santa's arrival.

The Christmas Cheer Advent Calendar mixes sewing with Appliqué - you can of course Appliqué your Calendar however you choose but for this one I have used a Triple stitch on my machine.

This is a great Advent Calendar to involve the whole family.  Whether you fill it with treats, lollies, chocolates, trinkets or even beautiful notes this will be a treasured creation for many years to come.  Handmade to treasure as you countdown the days to Santa's visit.

  1. I'm not a fan of Liberty (I know, there must be something wrong with me) but seeing that business card I think I could become a fan! This project is fabulous and would make such a great family tradition. Love it!
