Our talented sewing expert Steph counts down the days to Christmas with this adorable appliqué advent calendar. She will show you how to make your own to get your home looking festive! String the calendar on the wall or even hang the pockets on the tree so they double up as decorations. The clear appliqué foot #23 is great for narrow satin stitches and gives you the perfect view of what you're sewing. Christmas isn't far away now so let's get sewing...merry stitchmas everyone!
