Santa’s Sleigh Advent Calendar Panel
The Santa’s Sleigh Advent Calendar Panel is a modern, happy and bright way for your small (and perhaps not so small) people to count down the days until Santa comes.
The Santa’s Sleigh Advent Calendar Panel features a flying Santa’s Sleigh full of goodies just waiting to be delivered.
The fabric panel is ready to be embroidered and embellished or simply assembled to add some extra Christmas excitement to your festive decorations.
The designs are outlined in black however embroidering over them with some gold thread and adding some metallic stars or beads and sequins will make it sparkle and bring it to life. The assembly of this Advent Calendar is particularly easy, as the pocket section of the panels is just folded up and stitched into place, concertina style.
Just so you know how easy this panel is to assemble, we used this Advent Calendar for our last Children’s Embroidery Term in 2016. The students embroidered and embellished the panel with Santa’s Sleigh on it and added braids, sequins and beads to finish it off.

The full assembly instructions, including where to fold and stitch are pre-printed on the panel.
The entire panel measures approximately 60cm x 112cm and is 100% cotton.
The finished size of the advent Calendar (once its made up) is approximately 56cm x 62cm. Of course, you can always add a border or two if you would like to make the Calendar larger and a real feature in your festive decorations.
Just in case you are a bit nervous about embellishing and adding beads and sequins to your Advent Calendar for some extra sparkle

The History of Advent Calendars
The tradition dates to the mid-19th century, when German Protestants made chalk marks on doors or lit candles to count the days leading up to Christmas. Gerhard Lang is widely considered the producer of the first printed Advent calendar in the early 1900s.
