Countdown til Christmas!


Now that Thanksgiving is past and gone, its Christmas time for real, and I can hardly stand it!  I’m a sucker for Christmas countdowns, and here is a super simple countdown you could make for your home!


Start by making 24 pockets.  I outlined them in double-sided white bias tape because it curls so nicely around curved edges.


Make a strip of fabric for the binding, and paint up twenty four buttons.  I found these blank wood buttons on eBay for cheap cheap cheap.


Sew button holes in the pockets, then lay everything out on a big quilted rectangle and sew the pockets down around the outer curve.


   We used a dowel rod: painted it white and drilled holes in the ends to run a string through.IMG_8807

Then chock it full of candy and treats!IMG_8811This turned out really big–about a door’s width, so hanging on the back of a door might be a great idea for saving wall space.


 Merry Christmas!!IMG_8797
