Assembly

Before you start assembling your advent calendar, block all your pieces. Just get each piece wet, wring out as much water as you can, shape them and lay them flat to dry. Taking time to do this will make your finished project look much nicer.

Now that you have all your pieces, you will want to take one-half hexagon and sew it to the front of a whole hexagon. I used a running stitch to do this. This will create your pocket.

Once all your pockets are sewn on, lay your hexagons out according to the template provided and sew your hexagon pieces together. I used a whip stitch on the back of each solid hexagon and made sure I was only sewing through the solid hexagon and not the half hexagon layer.

Top your tree with the little yellow star and you are almost done.

Your advent calendar needs to have numbers on it in order to count up or down to Christmas. You could embroider numbers onto the pockets.
