This is where it all begins.
Everything starts here, today.

Last weekend, I prepared the body of the Advent Calendar. This weekend, I ironed and my friend Mariana sewed, and together we finished it! :)
Mariana is just 10 years old, but already she is showing both interest and skill in sewing.
I figured she could probably do the outer edges of the pockets (and she did - easily!) - but I was a bit worried about the inner seams that were needed to split the larger piece of fabric into separate pockets...
I pinned them back for her, and...
... she did an amazing job!
I was so impressed with how patient and careful she was! :)
I think she's happy with her Advent Calendar!
And I know that I am very happy with the thought that this may be the beginning of her love of sewing! :)
