I chose one of the Ornamental blocks , finished at 10″ and created a mini advent calendar using Michael Miller Christmas fabrics.
Using a 60 degree triangle ruler, I cut a 3 3/4″ and 4 1/4″ triangle.
Added some ribbon for hanging.
Bound the ‘ornament’ using 2 1/4″ wide binding cut on the bias.
Added flat numeric buttons and a used a cute, little elf button to move along the date buttons each day.
A simple, easy project to hang on the children’s bedrooms door, in the house or give as a gift.
There are 23 other fantastic bloggers lined up to showcase each of the blocks used in different ways to inspire your own creations.
