Sweetwater Advent Calendar

One of my latest projects is an advent calendar for our college age student with little treats and love notes from home.   It is a Sweetwater project with their cute labels and fabrics.

You can find the kit in their etsy shop.

  1. Greetings! I messaged Sweetwater regarding this pattern, but still no answer. I saw your blog post, and I was wondering if you might remember. Here's my question to them:

    "I purchased the Countdown to Christmas Advent Bag kit last year. This week I decided to sit down & start them so I’d have them for the holidays. I’m a quilter - not a bag maker - and I find myself with a question.

    The finished size is 3.5”x4.25”. The instructions say the 1/4” seam is included. But the outer canvas cut instructions is “cut 25 bags 4.25”x3.5”.

    If I cut 4.25”x3.5”, then finished would be 3.75”x3.0”. Is that correct or do I add the 1/4” (cutting 4.75”x4”)? The fabrics are beautiful, and I don’t want to mess up the first cuts."

    Thank you!
