The House Advent Panel
By Makower Fabrics
The House Advent Panel puts us straight into the Christmas mood as it shows a home beautifully decorated for the festive season.
Every window shows us what Christmas thing is happening inside each room. We can even see Santa and his sleigh on the roof between the chimneys.
What a lovely way your small (and perhaps not so small) people to count down the days until Santa arrives.
The pockets are simple to add to the Calendar and can hold a daily little treat or sweet.
This panel would be such a fun way to count down the days before Christmas as every window something different to prepare for Christmas.
Panel Size: 60cm (24 inches) W x 114cm (45 inches) H
Printed Advent Calendar Design: 57cm (22 inches) W x 72cm (28 inches) H
Each Pocket measures: 8cm (3 1/4 inches) W x 7cm (2 3/4 inches) H
Sewing instructions for construction are included on the Panel but 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.
The Calendar and Pockets can have as much or little embellishment as you wish.

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.
