The theme for the Craft Barn Calendar Challenge this week is felt or feutrine. I love working with fabric but this gave me a real dilemna. All I could think of was a Christmas inspired calendar page but IT'S ONLY NOVEMBER AND CHRISTMAS IS IN DECEMBER!!
Finally, I gave in and made an unashamedly Christmas piece. This page also breaks my rule for not doing seasonal or festival related themes but I always knew that December would be the exception!
|I die cut the red and white felt for the stocking. The background is a piece of calico. Unfortunately, the December calendar tab has a huge bar code across the back but it was impossible to hide so please just pretend it's not there!|
|The calendar (and bar code!) with inked edges a little Tim glitter applied across the top. Tiny red gems were added for more Christmas sparkle.|
|The white section was adorned with some machine embroidery using a gold lurex thread.|
