I asked my dad the other day if he would make a wooden advent calendar for my family. In his typical style, he did not say anything. Then I got a call "this project, what size do you want the space for the boxes?"So the pressure was on me to come up with a number. Three inches I said. Well, hmmm.. maybe two, eh, two isn't big enough, grr... 2 and half. It didn't really matter I was just happy to hear he started working on it. Honestly, I did not think it would happen this year. Of course, that is chicken counting - you know, before the egg hatches. So then I realized, he was a roll, and I had to make 24 little fabric bins. Normally I have time to make something like this, but I knew I couldn't put this off. So I used up a nap-time to create the pattern, (I'm crossing my fingers it will fit into the cubby space that is 3 (?) inches tall. My goal is to get them done this week. So I can put the finishing touches on the calendar during the last week of November. Here is a peek at the first three fabric bins.
|3/24 (12.5% complete, if they are the right size)|
I spent a good deal of time working on the pattern and finding fabrics today, so I hope I can get more sewn up tomorrow. Hmm... what is the probability I will actually get them finished this week? We'll see. We have 15 days until it needs to be ready to go.
