Advent calendar, tick. From start to finish, this takes me about 12 hours, maybe more, I've never counted.. Cutting the fabrics, ironing them, embroidering the numbers, sewing, cutting the faces and hair and embroidering the eyes and mouth then finishing it all off (plus undoing and redoing some of it!), it's A LOT of work. So I always feel quite pleased when it's all finished and it turns out OK.
