Burlap & Pocket Advent Calendar

0-9 number stamps
red ink pad
large button
16 in. wooden stick
12 inches of twine
16X24 in. piece of burlap
1/4 yard durable, sturdy white fabric
sewing machine
hot glue gun & glue
card stock to make templates

To make pocket templates use the measurements above.  The number of squares for each different size pocket is included on each template.

After you have cut out all your pockets, stamp them with the numbers 1-24.  Placement of numbers is up to you, I made my numbers on random spots of the pockets, but you can line yours up nice and pretty if you prefer more order.

Place your pockets on the burlap and pin into position using sewing pins.

Sew along the dotted line. 

Cut off extra strings

 Hot glue the twine to the end of the wooden stick, as shown above.

 Hot glue button to twine.  If you like, you can back your button with a circle of felt adhere with hot glue.

Use hot glue to attack burlap to the wooden stick.

Fill with festive things to do and small treats!
