sewing calendar

August 19th, 2009

No baby yet (two days overdue and counting) but this is pretty damn exciting. I’m in a calendar! and I’m not naked in it! This is a pretty fantastic calendar, one I might even pick up if I wasn’t in it–and I’m pretty cheap, I mean I draw my own calendars monthly. There are so many fantastic projects in here:  two each week. It’s just the right amount because you could actually do two little sewing projects each week.  And there are so many fantastic bloggers in here like Ellen from the long thread, Alicia from the Mayfly, Dawn from UK lass in the US, and the listed of talent just goes on and on.  I’ve got 2 projects in the calendar: the tin can cover (hey look it’s on the cover!) and the post office bag, oh wait I found another in there, the half eaten gingerbread man (all my tutorials are here, if you are interested). I can’t believe I’m thinking about Christmas yet, but I am, and this would make a great gift for a lot of people on my list. I have no idea if it’s in stores yet, or what stores it will be in, but if I see it in one I will surely freak out and tell everyone I know.

    Congratulations on making the cover! The calendar looks amazing. A great gift for sure. And I remember so clearly grocery shopping four days overdue and just feeling so big, but it wasn’t August and 90 degrees out! Wishing you the best!

    Well deserved, Meg! This may have to be on my holiday giving list, as well–at least for my mom since she is as sewing crazed as I am–if not more. Godspeed with the baby!

    Hello from Sydney, Australia. Love your projects. My little needle book made it into the calendar too. It’s fun flipping through all the projects, isn’t it?

    I got the sewing calendar for Christmas yesterday and had to try your tin can cover the second I had a spare minute.

    It was really fun and so cute. I used an industrial sized can so I could finally have a nice home for my tall paint brushes.

    Thank you for a very fun project I’ll do again and again. You can see it here:
