I found the CUTEST panel for an Advent calendar when I was at Sarah's in Kansas.
It was a train!
You guys, this panel is ADORABLE and oh so easy to put together.
I first layered the panel with batting and backing.
Then I free motion quilted around the motifs on the panel.
Next was making the "boxes" that the advent gift would go in.
Then I sewed those to the panel.
I trimmed it, and machine bound it.
I made three hanging loops that I stitched under the binding on the back.
The Advent calendar could be hung from the loops or not.
I used this adorable Santa fabric on the back.
Just a few close ups to show the "boxes" and how they are sewn on to the panel.
I love how this turned out.
The panel is by Makower UK.
Santa fabric was from Joann Fabrics.
Binding was a Bonnie and Camille basics I think.
Super easy but super cute!
On to the next projects.
