Travel Advent Calendar Sew-along Day 2



Day 2
Today we start sewing our advent calendar book.
We're going to start with the pockets.
Take the 24 small squares of fabric you cut yesterday.

For each one in turn, double turn what will be the top edge of your pocket and stitch.


So each pocket should then look like this. From the front on the left, and the back on the right.


Now to add the numbers.
Cut your sheet of numbers into individual pieces.


Then lay each one on top of a pocket.

 Now to attach the numbers to each pocket, you will need to peel the backing paper from the fusible webbing and place the number on the pocket. 

Then cover with a damp cloth and press with a hot iron for a few seconds.


Now take each pocket with its number on and stitch around the edge of the number square using a tight zig-zag or applique stitch. I always do this with applique in case the glue ever becomes unstuck!


Once you've done this for all 24 pockets, you've completed day 2!
