Kirstie's Handmade Christmas
In 2015 I entered a competition to create the best hand made advent calendar for Kirstie Allsopp’s Christmas craft programme. A couple of days later I received a call asking me to send over my ideas for the advent calendar I would create during the show. I did my research and decided that I would try and recreate a fabric version of the traditional paper fold out advent calendar.
I made a mini version to see how it would work and sent it across with some design sketches.
To make my advent calendar even more special I decided that I would use the homes of my friends and family to line the streets and on each day you would open the house door to see who lived at the property.
