Trust me, it's not too early to start your Christmas sewing.
I made this Advent calendar for my Grandbaby in 2008. It took me about 3 months to complete. I wanted something large enough to put small gifts in. This one measures approximately 3 feet wide by 4 feet long.
Below is a close up of the pockets and bottom corner.
Here it is, completely full and ready to go.
And, with Mommy's permission, I am posting a picture of my beautiful grandbaby, Miss Oakleigh Elizabeth.
