Silent Night Nativity Advent Calendar Wall Hanging
Line up each calendar row, starting with the center along the center marking lines and placing the remaining rows an inch apart, pinning into place. Stitch down the sides and bottoms of each row.
Stitch down the lines between each box to create the pockets.
With right sides facing, stitch the bottom of the Nativity centerpiece to the top of the calendar piece. Press open.
Cut a 49 inch long by 21 inch wide piece from the coordinating fabric.
With right sides facing, pin, then stitch together the top end of the front to the backing.
Bring the bottom ends together and begin pinning around the bottom and sides. As the backing piece is longer than the front, it will wrap around to the front at the very top.
Stitch along sides and bottom, leaving a 3 inch gap at the bottom center for turning. Turn right side out and press flat.
Slip stitch the bottom gap closed by hand. Fold the top edge over to the backside 1 1/4 inches and stitch 1/8 inch from the edge.
Insert dowel rod (cut to 22 inches in length) into casing. Attach cord or ribbon to create hanger at desired length.
Fill each pocket as desired. Hang on the wall or door & count down the days to Christmas!
