1/2 yard front
1/2 yard back
1 yrd green for tree
fat quarter for bag
fat quarter for tree trunk or just use scrapes
1 yard of heavy pellon
1/2 yard of heat and bond
2 yards of rick rack to trim your tree.
scraps for applique words
1 1/2 ribbon for your numbers
For the ornaments:
I used 1 pkg small clothes pin.
1 1/2 yards ribbon
24 Christmas buttons
Lets get started; you will want to do this in sections;
Sew back and front together with heavy pellon in between.
Cut your tree out. Cut two of each branch section (a front and a back) and sew together with heavy pellon in between. Repeat and make three branch section. See picture.
I put 3 button holes on the bottom section, 2 in the middle section and 4 on the top. Theses buttonholes will be used to hang the ornaments on. You can decide how many and where you want them. The rest of the ornaments will hang off the edges. Sew the rick rack onto the bottom of each section.
Cut your trunk out of the brown fabric 3"x5" cut 2 fabric & 1 pellon
Place bag in lower left corner sew on three sides to create a pocket. Above the bag and in the middle of your background fabric place the trunk of tree and sew into place.
To make your ornaments cover each clothspin with ribbon and then glue buttons on to the side of the clothspin. Once you have them all done and they are dried put them into the bag you made.
Hang up and count down to that special day. Every day pick an ornament and hang it on the tree on the number for day.
