Customising your Christmas Wish Advent Calendar

Completed Dashwood Studio Advent Calender finished

It seems I’m not the only one taken by Christmas Crafting in July, our Christmas Wish Advent Calendar Panels have been flying out the door since my how to post earlier in the week. I appreciate my version of the calendar was probably on the girlier side and I had a couple of questions from customers on other co-ordinating fabrics and bias bindings that could also be used with the panel.

Christmas Wish fabrics and binding

I’ve pulled together some co-ordinating fabrics and bias bindings so you can see how they look alongside the panel which will hopefully make customising your advent calendar a little easier.

Backing fabrics

A few options for backing fabrics from Dashwood Studios and Sevenberry

Christmas Wish Fabrics

Left Side: All Dashwood Studios: Snowflake Red, Snowflake Green, Snowflake Blue, Gingerbread, Flurry Teal

Right Side: All Sevenberry: Red Gingham, Red Spot, Red Ticking, Sage Green Gingham, Sage Green Spot, Sage Green Ticking, Light Pink Gingham, Light Pink Spot, Light Pink Ticking

These fabrics could also be used to make your own bias binding, one fat quarter should be more than enough for 2.5 inch binding.

Bias Bindings

We have quite a lot of pre-made bias bindings in stock at The Homemakery and despite the number we have it is hard to get an exact match so these are the ones which go well with the panel. The border of the panel is red, so when choosing a co-ordinating bias binding bear that in mind.

Choosing a bias binding

Top to bottom: Light Pink Polka Dot Bias Binding, Brown Polka Dot Bias Binding, Grey Polka Dot Bias Binding, Beige Polka Dot Bias Binding, Red Stripe Bias Binding, Red Gingham Bias Binding, Pink Stripe Bias Binding, Pink Gingham Bias Binding, Sage Green Lace Edge Bias Binding, Red Lace Edge Bias Binding, Pale Blue Lace Edge Bias Binding.

I hope those pictures help visualise the fabrics and bindings in real life.  If you need any further help do drop me an email!
