Count down the days by stitching up 24 simple rectangles (striped or solid), then folding them in half and sewing them up the sides to form pockets that hold little surprises. The number are cut out of felt and attached with fabric glue.

TIP: Because the pockets are made from small garter-stitch blocks, this is a fun teach-a-child-to-knit project.
