Advent Calendar: Part 2

Welcome to part 2 in my advent calendar tutorial. Today, there are 10 more patterns to look through. Again, no sewing is required for any of these squares (though I did add some embroidery on 2 squares, it's not necessary). Fabric glue is the key in getting your squares created.

The squares I made are roughly 4 1/2 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches long. If you prefer to make a smaller version, you should be able to copy my patterns into a word document and scale them to the size you want.

Let's get started:

A Christmas train.

Supplies:  Felt: tan, black, red, light green, dark green, dark brown, cream, yellow, blue and dark blue {square is red felt}. Optional: Add an initial to the train.

3 candles with a holly base.

Supplies:  Felt: red, green, yellow, black {square is light blue felt}

Technique: to give the flame of the candles some warmth, place a dab of glue in the center of the flame. Using your nail, remove some fibers from red and orange felt and lay them down onto the glue. This adds a little extra dimension to your candles.

Simple polka dots.

Supplies:  Felt: cream {square is red felt}

A stocking ready to be stuffed.

Supplies:  Felt: dark green, red and cream {square is tan felt}. The stripes were made out of thin strips of cream felt.

Warm mittens.

Supplies: red and cream felt and some string for the mittens {square is dark green felt}

The December flower: poinsettia.

Supplies: red, green, dark green and yellow felt {square is light blue}

A few snowflakes to make for a White Christmas.

Supplies: light blue felt {square is dark blue felt} and 6 white mini poms

I created my snowflakes by folding a square of felt in fourths and cutting out a few shapes {like the good old grammar school days or making snowflakes out of paper}. Roughly, the shape that resulted has been turned into a pattern below.

A Christmas penguin {?}.

Supplies: black, white and orange felt {square is light blue felt}, 2 white poms for the eyes or 2 googly eyes.

10 drummers drumming.

Supplies: red, cream, tan, green and yellow felt {square is light blue} and 6 yellow mini poms


Supplies: dark green and light green felt {square is red felt}, 3 red mini poms for the berries on the O - wreath, ribbon for the bottom of the square and 5 green mini poms for the top of the square

Come back tomorrow to check out the rest of the patterns you can use to finish your own advent calendar.
