Now that Thanksgiving is finally over, its Christmas time for real, and I can hardly stand it! I'm a sucker for Christmas countdowns, thanks to Mom! This one was really fun to put together.
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. Add the binding and loops up top.
We used a basic wood dowel rod: painted it white and drilled holes in the ends to run a string through.
Then chock it full of candy and treats!
This 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.
