I just got the new Pottery Barn Kids/Baby catalog - DARLING! This calendar was in it. It is $59. I have their Halloween and Thanksgiving calendars and love them and they are very well made.
For some reason I am not totally sold on these colors or something about it. I realize if I attempt to make it I will not be saving any money but may spend more. So I would not be doing it for the cost factor. I think this idea is just great and am throwing around the idea of making one and giving myself awhile to finish it. I just love the idea of pockets to put little notes in and the holiday badges.
I have been wanting to do an online project with some gals and then have everyone show how theirs turned out and this could be great. Anyone up for making a family calendar? Or should I just save my pennies and buy it? I would be happy to come up with a pattern and do some photo tutorials...
description from the catalog
The abstract concepts of day and date start to become concrete when your child interacts with this hands-on calendar. Each date is a little pocket where treats, surprises or notes can be tucked. Special small icons mark big days like birthdays and holidays. Made of durable felt with cotton percale trim and a bottom pocket for storing icons. Corner grommets for wall-hanging.
