I'm thrilled to say that I finally stitched together the last of the emoji for the advent calendar I've been working on for months now. Here are some finished product shots...
At first look, it's a traditional felt advent calendar. But Instead of candy-canes and gingerbread men, there are fun little surprises tucked into each numbered pocket: Christmas-inspired emoji made of felt, ready to be pinned to the tree.
Just for fun, you may notice a few iPhone inspired details: the edges of the calendar are rounded in the shape of the popular cellular device and a swirling peppermint doubles as the phone's home button.
I got a kick out of choosing which emoji best represented the spirit of the holiday season. NYC car service and snail mail were no-brainers...
And here's the full cast of characters, if you're curious:🌵 🌴 🎀 🐦 🐔 🍐 🚀 ⛸ 📯 💍 🌟 💟 🚂 😎 ✌ 🚖 🍪 👼 ⛄️ 🎺 📦 🔔 🤖 🎁
Looking forward to seeing my kids get a crack at this one come December!
