Note from Team NZP

 

 

After steam pressing and preshrinking our 10-inch fabric squares, we then cut the 10-inch squares into four equal sections – yielding four 4-3/4″ fabric squares from each 10-inch precut fabric square. If your fabric squares measure 4-3/4″ like ours did – also cut your Wonder-Under and Sof-Shape squares as 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″.

Treasure Pocket Advent Calendar Sewing Tutorial by Mary Mulari at The Nancy Zieman Productions Blog

  • Attach Open Toe Sewing Machine Presser Foot to sewing machine.
  • Set machine for an appliqué stitch, blanket stitch, or medium zigzag stitch (3.5 mm width, 1.4 mm length).
  • Stitch around number appliqué edges.

Note from Team NZP

 

 

When stitching –or appliquéing– appliqués to pocket front, stop with needle down on the outside of appliqué fabric when turning outside curves or corners; and stop with needle down on the inside of appliqué fabric when turning inside curves and corners! Always test stitches on a sample appliqué number– fused to a fabric scrap.

 

Create Treasure Pocket

Note from Team NZP

 

 

When fusing Treasure Pocket front and back fabric squares, avoid fusing the top 1″. The ribbon hanger will later be inserted into this opening.

    I miss watching. Nancy soooo much. I remember during some special program maybe 15 or more years ago and they were making food, recipes printed on aprons and they had a live band who kept eating instead of playing. Mary and Nancy were so hilarious I could not stop laughing. I tried to look up the video to show friends because it was the best ever, but couldn’t find it anywhere. Do you have any links to that show? I would love to watch it again..🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️😂😂😂❤️❤️❤️❤️
