Embroidered Advent Calendar

Make this year super exciting and stitch a day your own Christmas craft advent calendar.  After all advent calendars are for us adults too!

Using the simple step by step guide inside the embroidery kit, hand embroider a bauble onto the printed advent calendar each day in advent.  Each woven wheel stitch (aka rose stitch, spider stitch or woven wheel stitch) bauble takes approximately two minutes to stitch and by Christmas day you will have mastered this technique and will be simply enjoying the process of stitching into paper.  Check out the guide in our 'How To' section. 

Each advent calendar has 25 baubles to stitch, including Christmas day!

To keep this embroidered advent calendar as eco friendly as possible, we have used a recycled kraft paper and vegetable oil based inks.

This embroidered advent calendar is part of a wider collection of embroidery kits by mixed media designer Leah Nikolaou.  Leah’s signature style is that she mixes her two favourite hobbies of flower pressing and hand embroidery when creating her embroidery designs.  This particular embroidery design focuses on mindfulness and the concept of crafting for self care around Christmas time.  By taking just a few minutes to embroider each day you can welcome calm into your day.  The art of piercing paper is extremely therapeutic.  If you would like to learn more about how to hand embroider paper click read ‘How To Embroider Paper.’.  If you are uncertain about your embroidery ability, see how easy it is to stitch the embroidery advent calendar by reading the ‘How To Master The Woven Wheel Tutorial’  blog post.
