Alice & Co Advent: Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Regular price £0.00

Once upon a time, many Christmases ago, a wicked and negligent mother had forgotten to get her two little children, Lilia and Louis, an advent calendar.. Too busy drinking gin and tonic, painting her nails and selfishly stitching herself an glamorous festive frock.
But the poor little mites were so upset - or so hungry for some chocolate - that even the wicked mother felt mean.
So she put down her glass, picked up her needle and scrabbled in her stash for inspiration...
A remnant of green wool, some felt scraps and a couple of bags of chocolate coins and an advent calendar that was the envy of all their school friends was born....

Twenty years on it's still coming out every year. In the spirit of both festivity and sustainability.

Even if you're not mean why not have a go at making one for your family with our free downloadable PDF pattern + instructions
