Tea Towel Calendar

Blog friends. They are real friends. And I have been blessed to make a few very special ones. One of my blog friends, Heather Mann of Dollar Store Crafts, had this beyond-fantastic collaboration idea: 2010 calendar towels with exclusive graphics, dollar store materials and an easy tutorial. And because I thought it was a brilliant idea, I was more than happy to create the original digital illustration and design for a project we could both share with you.Click on the two calendar images below to download the PDF files and then go right over to Dollar Store Crafts for Heather’s tutorial on making sweet towels and wall-hangings using inexpensive materials. We think these will make the very best holiday gifts for your hostess, neighbor, kid’s teacher, and even for your own charming kitchen.
NOTE: When trying to download, if you get a “Google Bandwidth Exceeded” message, please try again, that just means the calendar download/image is getting too much traffic at once.Below is another image to download, print and fold to create a coordinating gift card.As I was working on this design, I thought it would be nice to finish off the fun with a sweet friendship graphic for your blog. Email one to your own special blog friends along with a link to this awesome post I found yesterday on Edie Wadsworth’s blog, life in grace.

    Thank you for sharing this graphic! When I first saw it, I thought it was cute, but I'm not really into tea towel calendars. I kept it in mind and used it this morning to stencil / print onto a onesie as a gift for a friend. The design is perfect for stenciling since there are so few floating pieces. Thanks for sharing!
