BOM Calendar Begins Today!

Numbers Happy October 1st, Everyone!

Today is the first day of our “Mosey Through The Year” BOM Calendar.

An important part of any calendar is the numbers, and that is what we are going to focus on this month. A pdf document with directions may be found by clicking here at

Photos of the number-making process, below:




A few notes:

***The directions call for stiffener. I used Pellon Fusible Fleece, and it was perfect. It gave the stiffness I needed, with a little thickening power to give the numbers that quilted look.

***The most tedious part of this step is turning your numbers. I did it while watching television, and it worked fine. Take your time, use a sewing tool meant for this purpose, or a dull pencil.

***When you sew the velcro on the numbers, have the velcro go from left to right across the back of the number, not up and down. Cut the velcro just a hair shorter than the width of the number square, and as you sew the topstitching it will catch into place and secure it.

Feel free to comment below as you work on your numbers. Post a photo on your blog or somewhere online and let us know how you are coming along. We’ll love to see your color choices and hear any comments/suggestions you might have along the way.

  1. Progress. The background is yellow. The numbers are black. I now know that my fabric ink won't last a month. That means my carefully traced letters disappeared before I finished the stitching. The plan to do one number a day failed 😦 but I wil be done by Nov 1
