Advent Calendar and Gnomes

I commissioned (haha, i asked) momma mia to knit the envelopes of this advent calendar. I then felted them and embroidered the numbers. St. Nick's, St. Lucia's, Solstice, Christmas are all gray envelopes. I ran out of wooden buttons to secure the tabs. Plus some decorative embroidery is needed although i like the plainness. Hmmm...

The envelopes are big enough to hold things such as these gnomes. Free pattern here
On St. Nicholas morning Ezra's wellies were filled with chocolate gold coins and a big red gnome.

We are gnome happy around here.
