Crafty & Catholic Advent Calendar

Linen Advent calendar inspired by this countdown calendar:

instructions found on pg 79 of the 2008 issue of Holiday Crafts magazine.


With the color of Advent being purple, the accent colors are purples. Pockets are filled with prayer cards, reminder to feed the poor, handmade notes... Dec 6th pocket has a bishop's hat & Saint Nicholas prayer card tucked in it. Dec 13th pocket has a candle for St Lucia. The cards tucked in the Dec 24th pocket say: What are you going to give Jesus for His birthday? And the Dec 25th pocket has a star for the star of Bethlehem & in it has prayer cards with baby Jesus on them.
