Yes, you read correctly. Christmas 08 is hardly out the door, and we’re already talking about sewing for Christmas 09. Specifically, CraftApple is announcing an Advent calendar sew-along for Christmas 09. Every year, I say I’m going to make a handmade Advent calendar, and every year Christmas comes and goes without it getting made. If the same thing happens at your house, consider joining her sew-along. She offers a pattern to make the cute mini-stockings pictured here. Remember, there are only 362 sewing days left until Christmas 09!
