Advent calendars - 5th December 2011

I have long been envious of those with beautiful hand crafted advent calendars when my children get excited about the soul less chocolate ones from Sainsbury's. This year I really good intentions of making my own but it's already the 5th December and I haven't even found a design I like yet for inspiration. However it probably is the best time of year for inspiration and so tonight I'm going to have a serious dig around on my favourite blogs and websites for ideas to get me started.

This one is from Melissa and her 25 days of Christmas Craft. I do love the little scraps of fabric and the reuse and recycle element. The children could help choose the fabric and the hand embroidery is adorable.

This baby sock calendar is by Martha Stewart and I just love baby socks. There would be plenty of for room for little advent treats.

I think it is going to have to be fabric and I really like the natural unbleached look of burlap. The colour scheme of this one fro  Sprite Stitch's Etsy Shop is beautiful and far more subtle than tradition holly berry red and evergreen leaf green.

However I really like the vintage feel of the Not on the High Street library cards and pockets advent calendar.
