Handmade Christmas: Personalized Perpetual Calendars

I think these calendars are quite possibly the coolest thing that I’ve ever made! I have to thank Rashida from i heart linen for the amazing idea. You can find Rashida’s original calendar here: Prairie Girl, Calendar Girl. When I first saw the calendar, the idea of putting fabric photos in it popped in my head, and I couldn’t wait to run to Joanns to get all the supplies. I am so happy with how these turned out, and I hope that the recipients love them! I emailed Rashida and found out that she has instructions for how to make these in her new book, I Love Patchwork: 25 Irrestible Zakka Projects to Sew, which is due out in just a few weeks and available for preorder right now. (I have it on my Christmas list–I can’t wait to see what other great ideas she has in there!)

I altered mine a bit from the original by putting a magnet strip on the back of each one so that they can be hung up on the refrigerator:

The days are made from fabric-covered buttons and the months are made from tiny popsicle sticks. Both mount with velcro.
