The faeries have been out in the snow all evening…now with cherry cheeks and sparkling eyes they are back warm and dry in their mossy cottage. Their woollens are hung (not by them, the naughty rogues – what a mess they make!) on this little laundry line – a wee and whimsical advent calendar, the perfect size to hold treats for your own small folk.

Each teeny hat is about 3.5 to 4 inches high, and about 3 inches across. Each little mitten is about 3 inches high and 1.5 to 2 inches across. The laundry line itself is about 8 feet in length, with the garments hung at approximately 5 inch intervals. This is all variable: I made the line to fit my space, plus a foot or two, so that it would droop a bit with the weight of the hats & mitts. You can make yours longer or shorter, however you like.
