Star Cloth


This year we are offering our Star Cloth Advent Calendar complete – already lovingly hand-stitched for you. Ready to hang for Advent straight from the box.

Out of stock



Unwrap the night-sky-cloth and sweetest hand embroidered Star Pocket, and then – alone or with your child – go into nature and find the perfect stick or fallen branch on which to hang the cloth. Once hung with care, explain to your little one that a golden star will appear every day in the Star Pocket for them to find – leave it by their bed to discover at bedtime, or first thing in the morning…the pocket features a deer and a shining Christmas Star ~ “oh the rising of the sun and the running of the deer” ~ from the traditional Carol The Holly and the Ivy.

Each day a star is added and you can say to your child, “When the night sky is full of stars it will be Christmas”.

A beautiful Advent tradition for your family, to be treasured and relied upon, reusable for generations to come.
