Finished Object Friday~Advent Bags

 I have always thought Advent calendars were such a neat idea and now that we have a little one I knew I had to do one.  After much looking on Pintrest (very addicting), I used ideas I had found and added a little of my own creativity.  I cut burlap into the size bags I wanted and stitched them up, leaving the top open.
I then hung them on red ric-rac from the stair rail in our kitchen.  My husband walked in one night and said "they are too plain" and thus the embellishments.  They are so cute now!  Piper is enjoying opening them, so have treats inside, others have note with an activity we are going to do.  
So what have you been making lately?  Link up with Chari  for her Finished Object Friday party.
