Fabric for a beginner-level sewing project to make a 40-day Nativity Fast calendar for churches on either the Old or New Calendar. The pockets fit the ornaments for Elissa Bjeletich’s “Welcoming the Christ Child” Nativity Fast readings (sold elsewhere). The fabric was designed in collaboration with Draw Near Designs, and can be glued OR sewn! When you receive the fabric you will be able to easily make a calendar that has the features shown in the photos.
- 40 square pockets for the full Nativity Fast period
- a larger Nativity pocket for Christmas Day
- a movable star placeholder for easy reference on the progress through Advent
- a Nativity pennant to celebrate through the Nativity season
Fabric includes: backing, 40 fasting pockets, 1 feast pocket, star to put on a stick to track progress through the fast, and a Nativity banner.
Materials required (not included): sharp scissors, sewing supplies and/or all purpose glue, popsicle stick.
Assembly: cut out the pieces with sharp scissors, sew or glue the pockets to the backing, sew or glue the banner together, and glue the tracker to a popsicle stick.
Your fabric will arrive in the mail directly from my fabric supplier in approximately 2 weeks.
