Count down to Christmas with Debbie Shore. Sew unique, personalised advent calendars for your loved ones, and fill them with their favourite festive treats and handpicked goodies that they’ll really treasure. There are 20 designs included, from traditional flat-pocket calendars to hanging cones and festive pouches, for both adults and children alike, along with a treat-filled calendar for the family dog! The book contains all the techniques needed to make the calendars, and every project is shown clearly step-by-step, with helpful tips and advice throughout. Using Debbie’s friendly and easy-to-follow instructions, it’s time to get crafty and create a new festive family tradition!

When Debbie Shore brings out a new book you know two things…

One is that it’s going to sell out quick so you’d better get it while you can and Two is that it’s going to be filled with fun, easy sewing projects that everyone is going to love.

Sew Advent Calendars is packed with Christmassy delights to hang in your home for the festive season or to gift to your favourite people.

Debbie Shore is an ambassador for sewists, new and old. She loves nothing more than to see how we all make her projects come alive and how we adapt them by adding our own stamp.

Not only is this great little book full of inspiration,it has handy tips, sewing know-how and embellishment ideas.  There are templates to help you complete your project in the back of the book.

The Santa Express is an adorable and colorful project for the smallest members of our family and The Promise Tree, I think, has a romantic notion for our loved ones. It is finished with tags that you can write a ‘I will’ promise on… just think of the promises you could give to your wife, husband or even a Grandparent.

I love this book and would recommend to every lover of sewing. It has no expiration date so these are projects that will be loved and adored for years to come.

I decided to make The Promise Tree.

1.

The best thing about Christmas projects is choosing the fabric.

Everything you need is simply described, along with beautiful photographic pictures for direction.

With a few simple steps I had the basic shape of my tree, I was really surprised at how big it was. Even at this stage it looks fabulous.

After a couple of hours, I had a finished tree,

I didn’t have any felt for numbers so I just used a sharpie pen. It looks great.

Now just to add the tags.

 

Win my Promise Tree… along with silver tags on which to write your promises
