Halloween Countdown Calendar

First of all, please forgive any typos in this post as my left index finger is injured at the moment. (Man, those rotary cutters are sharp!)  Anyway, I was thinking about the Nativity Advent calendar that I did a couple years ago, and thought it might be neat to make one for Halloween.  As I was thinking about what I wanted this Halloween countdown calendar to look like, I remembered some drawings that I used to make as a child during Halloween time.  They were elaborate pictures of witches brewing potions and riding around on broomsticks with their black cats.  This the scene I came up with, straight out of my childhood imagination.

Everything is sewn by hand or machine.  It measures 20″ x 30″ and has 31 pockets to put each figure in.  Every day for the month of October, you take a figure out, and add it to the scene.  When the scene is complete, that means it’s Halloween.  I’m really pleased with the way it turned out.  I want to go back to my childhood and play with all the fun pieces that I imagined!

I think my favorite parts are the little embroidered spell book, spiderwebs, and jar of eyeballs. 🙂

I cut the Velcro into little pumpkins and stars to keep it cute and functional.
