Bucilla Advent Calendar Kits to Make



Felt Advent Calendar Craft Kits to Sew by Hand

Bucilla make some really detailed and fun looking felt Advent Calendar kits that are designed to be sewn by hand and made either for yourself or, more often, to gift to a family member or someone special. I received one of these designs in the past and it was incredibly intricate with added bead work and tiny stitches.

Sewing one of these can make for something a little challenging to make in the months running up to the festive Holiday season. I enjoy sewing with felt because it is a lovely fabric to work with and easy to stitch through with a needle. This page takes a look at some of the craft kits that are offered for you to assemble and put together yourself.

This Santa's Toy Shop kit is such a delightfully looking design once sewn together and would most likely be ideal to make for cherish grandchildren so they can look forward to counting down the days to Christmas every year. This toy store design features a jolly looking Santa Claus standing with his sleigh in front of his shop.

There are numerous little and detailed felt embellishments to make which can be placed in a pocket to mark off each day as it arrives. There are little felt ornaments to sew, candle, candy cane, traditional styled toy designs, poinsettia, bell, gingerbread man, ice skate and more. The theme is a dream for most children who are anticipating the occasion with much excitement.

A kit like this will take many hours to sew by hand. It is detailed and an investment of time. However, once made, it can become a cherished family keepsake to be brought out, enjoyed and used year after year. This set was the one that caught my eye but there are more options below.


A number of the Advent kits to make include Santa as a theme. There is a head and white beard design where the pockets are in his beard. There's also a lovely looking set where he is standing before the fireplace with a sack of toys.

Other sets that I like the look of are a Nordic tree that has little felt ornaments to make and place on it. And a wonderful design of a gingerbread house with little hearts and candy canes. There are many ones to choose from - old to new - so if there are a number of children, family members or friends to make them for, you don't need to pick the same one for each.


Of course, for someone who loves sewing by hand, these kits could make a really wonderful gift too that they can enjoy making from one Holiday season ready for the next.
