Advent Calender

I have never made a quilt before and it was not as easy as it looks:) I wanted to make something that we can use for a couple of years and possibly to use it not only on X-mas. The base quilt can be used as a play- blanket or even a bed cover, but in the end we did save it to be used only during the holidays.

I used fabric paints from Marabu and some applique to decorate the little bags that the angel holds. It was the first time that I was trying those paints and I think that they are great! I even did some decorations on clothes with it and it washes great. The pictures on the little bags are mostly not mine. I either found some on the net, in a childrens toy catalogue or enlarged a stamp of mine.

Tina like it because there were many sweets in there and I liked it because it brought color into the hallway where we hangdet it up.

To make our space even more colorful for the holidays I made some window color decorations. I also used a product from Marabu. After using the fabric paints I fell in love with quality and decided to try other things from their palette.
