while browsing for free printable 2013 calendar to perk up my work station, i stumbled upon design milk’s best 2013 modern calendars.
The Wandkalendar pictured below grabs my attention.
rather than spending €14.50 for it, i decided to make one for myself.
You only need: calendar + post it notes + a hole punch
get the free pdf pattern here.
then punch holes on the post it notes..
jot down the notes/reminder, highlight the date with the hole, et voila!
you know what people say.. life’s what happens when you’re busy making other plans. so here are some of the stuffs i made
celebrate your halloween from comtc’s october calendar.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! (it’s 30 more days, i know, but whatever)
took me a while to make the pattern. glad it turned out right.
i finished this pouch so late last night, i had a dream i was in a craft store, buying supplies hahaha..
i’ll post the pattern for this pouch soon.
why only stuck with envelope when you can make more from the pattern?
here’s panda cellphone pouch, using felt and a little embroidery.
an order i finished last sunday. it works up quite quickly.
(start with color 1) for the foundation, chain multiple of 3, plus 1.
row 1 - v stitch (dc, ch 1, dc) in 5th ch from hook. [sk 2 ch, v stitch] to last 2ch. sk 1 ch, dc in last ch.
next rows - ch 3, v stitch in each ch1 sp across, dc on top of turning ch from last row.
edging: (change to color 2, or not - your call) ch 1, sc around evenly, working 2 or 3 scs on each corner, join with sl st.
(change back to color 1) ch 1, work shell (sk 2 sc, 5 dc in next sc, sk 2 sc, sc in next sc) around, join with sl st.
this last part can be a little tricky if your stitch count doesnt match up. but you can get around it, by adjusting the shell (sk 1 or 3 sc instead of 2) in some places.
just something i made last week. pattern can be found here, but i made some adjustments.
instead of forming 8ch into a ring with sl st, i used magic adjustable ring. and maybe because i used the ring, 9 petals fit better, instead of 10 in the pattern. i decreased the pattern count from round 4 onward.
so for round 4, it’s 54 dcs (space it evenly), for round 5 it’s 9 shells, 9 sc and so on.
click here for the print-ready pattern.
or print this template on green, then cut:
- two circles on white + two smaller circles on black for the eyes
- two small ovals on yellow
- two hands on green
draw the mouth with your sharpies.
cut the upper corners of the envelope to have rounded edges like the one in the picture.
coming up: owl envelope pattern.
