    Good luck! I have looked for these puppies for 2 or 3 months without getting anything I really like. So, I am just making my own weird pattern. I did get a Nativity Advent Calendar in embroidery from one of my online embroidery places, but haven't really gotten it right yet. I will work on it for myself and one for a friend for next year.

    I bought a panel last week. It has a scene and some shapes that you fuse to felt and then attach with buttons. It's from Benartex and designed by Nancy Halvorsen.

    this blog here is doing an advent calendar sew-along.

    Let's see if I can direct you....go to the top of this page and see the title Search ; click on that. A box will come up. Type in advent calendar. A list of threads will come up. It is the fourth one titled Charm Pack Advent Calendar. I wish I could give you a link, but I don't know how.

    I had recently made a list of tutorials I found on my personal website. A friend of mine wanted to make an advent calendar so I searched for some for her..

    I gathered a bunch of them. Maybe one will get you grabbing for fabric :) I am so tempted to make one for my family but I'm not sure if I'll get to it this year or not... We'll see...
