So I’ve started work sewing my festive items for my shop. I know that sounds nuts, but since high street shops start stocking their Crimbo things around September, I need to have mine listed not long after, which means giving myself August to make it all.
One thing I’m going to be making is advent calendar wall hangings and bunting - for example, a patchwork wall hanging to look like a simple Crimbo tree, with pockets for putting little gifts, decorations for the tree and messages in - it’s a nicer way to do advent than cheap chocolate in cardboard!
I’ve got a couple of nice, non-denominational designs worked out, both for a 24/25 day advent and a 12 day advent, but it occurred to me that my Pagan peeps might appreciate something more specifically themed for Yule.
So here’s what I want to ask. Would you guys be interested in a Yule advent calendar wall hanging that was Pagan themed? Would you go for, say, a Yule tree with decorations like felt futhark runes, or tarot cards? What about a wall hanging with a scene depicting the Goddess with her Crone aspect? Or a Holly King image with the decorations being holly leaves and berries to decorate him with? What sort of imagery and designs would you like to see?
Or are you fine with just a simple, non-denominational festive tree-theme with the choice to swap out the decorations for Christian/Pagan/Secular themed ones?
