Make your own Advent calendar Part 2

Use textile markers to decorate your own mini fabric bags

See Part 1 for instructions on how to make the tree.

These pretty fabric bags for your advent calendar are easy to decorate with our textile markers and pens. Decorative numbers, stars, mini Santas – you can draw just about anything with these versatile markers from edding. The fine textile pens are particularly good for drawing outlines, lettering and precise details, whilst the broad textile markers are ideal for decorating and colouring in. If you like, you can stitch your own bags for your Advent calendar and fill them yourself. We’ve even provided some instructions for you!
