Aaah! I know what you're saying! "Is that really a Christmassy thing already?" Well, yes, it is!
Today I'm guest blogger over at Simply Solids.
The lovely Justine wanted me to use some Christmas fabrics, and I thought: "What needs to be made well in advance for Christmas?" Well, an advent calendar of course.....you need that right from the start of December, and that's only about 9 weeks away!
This is bunting that has pockets in it so you can add little treats, one for each day.
The pockets are fastened with a ribbon loop and little button, so there'll be no peeking before the day.
You can choose to make just one length, or split it in two as I have done. It makes it a lot easier to hang on a chimney breast, door or a child's wall.
To make the bunting you will need:
7 fat quarters of Christmas fabric
Bias binding tape
Narrow ribbon for the button loops
25 small buttons
A small piece of solid white for the numbers
Bondaweb or other fusible to secure the numbers in place.
The full instructions along with templates for the pennants and numbers and plenty of stage by stage photos can be downloaded here
