I've been working on this project since Monday night!
It might be my favorite project so far.
I love the Thanksgiving season! Now we can count down the days while counting our blessings with this cute little turkey advent calendar!
Thanksgiving always falls on a different date so I picked to have 27 days on my calendar. I appliqued the turkey & his feathers to the green fabric using wonder-under and just a regular ol stitch around the outside. The material used was remnants of fabric in my ever shrinking stash. The orange and paisley print were used to make my fall table runner, you can see it HERE. I sew velcro to the green fabric and to the back of a strip of felt. Next, I cut little squares of brown felt and back stitched the numbers. I cut the velcro strip to match each square and then whip stitched both squares together. I didn't want to leave the velcro as we counted down the days so I stitched up 27 more squares with the verse "In everything give thanks" and some leaves, one letter or leaf per square.
