Skill Level Beginner

Sizes Each ornament is approximately 2-3 inches tall. The finished calendar is 20 x 35 inches.

Options There are three options for how to assemble the tree (a solid tree, layers or individual branches), and two options for the pockets (either 4 strips of 6 pockets, or 24 individual pockets).

Fabrics You’ll need various scraps of a non-fraying fabric such as felt for the ornaments, plus 24 short strips of ribbon and 24 buttons. For the calendar, you’ll need one larger piece of non-fraying fabric 20 x 35 inches for the backing and approximately 15 x 20 inches for the tree. For hanging you will also need a 30 inch strip of ribbon or twine and a 24 inch long piece of dowel. Plus any trim or extra decoration you want to add!

If you use a fabric with a print or nap such as velvet, remember to cut all pieces in the same direction and to allow extra fabric for this.

See the fabric requirements in the gallery above for yardage. A serger/ overlocker is optional but NOT required.

Format – This trim-free pattern is a downloadable PDF and comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want.

    This is a great family project. I let my kids make the ornaments, the instructions were easy and they follow along. Lot of pictures to help with to make each ornament.

    So much fun! Older kids can help and love that it can all be sewn or glued. So easy to do and to customise to suit any Christmas decoration theme. The extra ornaments are added fun also!!
