2010 Sewing Calendar

I bet I am not the only one who's wished there were
a day-to-day calendar like this. YES!!
It's a Sewing Calendar!

I've seen several different kinds of craft-related
calendars like ones for Quilt, Crochet, and Beads, in the bookstore
but I just had never encountered a sewing version before.
But here comes a 2010 sewing calendar filled with
lots and lots of small, fun projects!!!

This is so awesome. During 2010, I'll have a different project
idea every other three days. How cool is that?!



These days I've been feeling like making softies, so
these two tutorials, the robot doll pocket pillow by Lauren Brandy
and the ice cream cone by Holly Klein
particularly caught my eyes, but there are tons more
cool sewing tutorials I want to try out!


Hey I see something familiar..


Yup! There are some tutorials of mine in it too!
Thanks so much for Megan Smith who put everything
together. This really came out great!!

The calendar can be purchased from the publishing company,
or Amazon online (The ISBN is 978-0740783951).
but it will be available in the major local bookstores too!


Oh if you were by any chance curious about the
secret that I didn't reveal in this post,
here is the hint ;)

Thanks for coming and reading!!

    The bag in the magazine is lovely!

  27. Thanks everyone!! You guys really do make my days!!

    It's A Wonderful-
    I made the handbag on the cover (yes you're right!) and there will be an instruction on it in the magazine but I didn't write an essay for the issue. Thanks for noticing!!

    It will be my very first project to be published in a magazine! The tote bag on the cover and something little more will be in the mag. The mag will be available in October in bookstores!

  28. Wow, that's great! I would like to have one, but... I probably have no chance down here in Slovenia :)

  29. I have ordered by copy from Amazon and it will arrive sometime in September. Can't wait to get it. /Yvonne
