Christmas countdown numbers

Christmas countdown numbers. The idea is to start on 1 December and have the blocks showing the right dates up until December 25. They hang on the wall. I made two 1s, two 2s, and one 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0. They are about 5 x 7 inches in size. I got the idea from an old german Brigitte magazine, although they had theirs made of wood. Its taken me quite a long time to do them, because I usually only have time to sew one seam at a time. But I'm glad I finished them in time for this Christmas. They are a bit wonky in parts, but they are made for kids to handle, so I wanted to make them fun-looking rather than formal.
