Buttonbag Christmas Craft Kits – Review

If, like me, you love the idea of being all crafty and pinterest-worthy – but when it comes to the crunch you just don’t have the skills. . . then Buttonbag will be right up your street. . . With a whole array of gorgeous Christmas crafts all prepared for you this festive season, you can earn your pinterest points without getting your glue gun in a twist!

I’ve always loved the idea of a reusable advent calendar, you know the ones you fill yourself each Christmas with different bits and bobs?   As someone who is pretty fond a good tradition, the idea of a handmade advent calendar which can be pulled out year after year is really appealing.

The Buttonbag Advent Calendar Craft Kit comes in an adorable little suitcase – which seems to me to be ideal to keep your finished advent calendar in to store away each year, however I know I’m going to have to keep it safe from Amy who has something of a penchant for little bags and suitcases!

A Button Bag Craft Kit - Make your own advent calendar

Inside the kit is everything you will need to make your own advent calendar including a backing sheet for your advent calendar which is all marked up for you, pre-cut felt squares for the pockets and sticky-back felt for the numbers and personalisation.  No measuring or complicated cutting out required. (I’m fairly sure we can all cope with cutting out the number and letter templates right?)

You do need to be able to hand-stitch around the edges of the pockets (no sewing machine required) and as this is done with embroidery thread, the stitches themselves will just add to the decoration.  I’m pretty sure even the most ham-fisted of us could manage a few stitches in a straight line . . .

Now I have yet put our advent calendar together but I’m led to believe it will only take a couple of evenings if you put your mind to it.  Of course I’m likely to find myself doing this right at the end of November because let’s be honest, there’s nothing like the pressure of a deadline.

    I would have to pick the virtual reality head set. I didn’t even realise there’s a Selfridges at The Trafford Centre.
