Crafty Ribbons Advent Calendar

Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with an advent calendar I made using Crafty Ribbons Christmas Advent ribbon, some beautiful snowflake felt, Crafty Ribbons Swiss Dots ribbon, plain white felt and my sewing machine for our Christmas challenge at Crafty Ribbons.

I started by cutting white felt bigger than the ribbon in strips of six to a line to fit on the snowflake felt. I placed each strip on the felt and saw the kind of distance I wanted between them. I then began sewing each strip of felt and the advent ribbon onto the snowflake material. I used the slight line marked between each number as where to sew each section-making pockets on each.

I then attached the swiss ribbon to hang it from.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Decorate to Celebrate: Anything Goes
Ikes world Challenge: Christmas in July
ABC Christmas: No is for No rules
Christmas at Sweet Stampin: Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner: Monochromatic
Creative Moments: Anything goes with ribbon/bows

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments!
