What a fun project for the Christmas Season. Children of all ages will enjoy this calendar. It comes with small pockets for the 24 days before Christmas. The pockets are just big enough to hold a wrapped chocolate piece or other candy. The pockets are small (1.50” w x 2.00” h ) so flatter candy works best. Of course, a surprise dollar in the pocket would also be welcomed, I am sure. Or how about tucking in a note of inspiration or encouragement for each day?
The top panel is a reminder of the true meaning and gift of Christmas.
There are 3 panels that are separately constructed in a 6×10” hoop and then stitched together on the sewing machine. The background of the calendar is lightly quilted. The faux binding also gets attached on the sewing machine. It is easy to do; we show you how.
