Folded Japanese Advent decorations

Bring list Japanese folded advent.


We will have a lovely day enjoying a hand stitched project so no need to drag along the machine. This is an Advent to hang on the tree so we will eventually make 24 and one extra large for Christmas day for that special gift.

The project can be made in just 2 fabrics or as many as you like, I like to use several coordinating fabrics to add more interest. The numbers on the base can be added at the end so we will discuss those in the class along with embellishments so no need to worry about that for now.


6 fat qtr of seasonal fabric

2 meters of pelmet Vilene or Timtex

½ meter of wadding or bring along your leftovers from other projects.

3 meter of narrow ribbon, can be in more than one colour.

Glue stick or pen

Card (cereal packet works well)

Coordinating thread

Strong thread, any colour

Pen pencil scissors

Hand sewing needle



Cutting mat (small if you have one, not essential)

Don’t forget your glasses if you need them.
