1. For the crafter who prefers a blank canvas we have this little number:
I used some bright colors for the text but left the top of this calendar panel completely blank for those who have their own ideas about how they would like to embellish their year.
free embroidery pattern from a few weeks ago.
2. For the crafter who might need a tiny nudge but wants to add their own personal touch there is this calendar panel.
It has three printed frames into which you can place anything - photos, small embroidery patterns, fabric swatches - anything you like.
I just happened to have some cute photos on hand so I used those. I am also including a half sheet of inkjet photo paper with every panel so you don't even have to make a run to Office Max and buy a bunch of it to make this.
3. Finally there is the retro inspired, vintage style "Good Day" panel available in pink and in aqua. These are pretty much ready to stitch right out of the envelope - no transferring patterns, no deciding on a pattern - just go. I am including a skein of sepia colored floss with every panel as well.
The other nifty thing is that when the year is over you can snip out the center design and frame it up in a six inch hoop and enjoy it for years to come. Practical - that's how I roll folks.
If you think you might be up for a fun embroidery project and want to give these a go you can find these in both my Etsy shop and my Website.
And now that that's all done I officially need some chocolate!
