This is a huge panel in felt. The Silent Night panel by Jennifer Long of Bee Sew Inspired for Riley Blake Designs makes into a beautiful soft book with handles. The panel includes an enormous number of cut-and-sew pieces, which can be fitted into the pockets in the book, or placed securely inside the folded book. This felt panel features the pieces to make a Nativity, from Mary riding the donkey as Joseph makes the journey to Bethleham, through angels, shepherds, wise men, camels, sheep, flowers, palm trees – over 30 separate pieces.
This has huge play value as children can arrange the different pieces to make scenes from the Nativity story. The separate pieces can be embellished the felt dolls with hand embroidery if desired, or simply cut, strengthen with a backing and play!
This could also be used as an Advent Calendar giving one a day to children throughout December.
The Nativity characters could also be used as Christmas tree ornaments.
Each panel comes individually packaged.
Requires backing fabric, buttons or snaps to secure.
Material is printed acrylic felt
Panel size is 36″ x 69″.
Please note: Instructons are printed on the panel. If you feel you would like some support with making this project, we will be holding a series of Sew Along sessions in November and December for you to come and make the panel up with support, hints and tips from staff at The Corner Patch. Plus tea/coffee and mince pies.
