Spoonflower Tea Towel Calendar

Did your Grandma have tea towels with calendars on them?  Mine did, and lately I’ve been missing my Grandmas and appreciating all things “vintage” just a bit more.  (I can almost feel a vintage Pyrex obsession coming on.  Red.  Or aqua … anyway. )

Spoonflower has a great selection of tea towel calendars.  Buy a fat quarter and it’s the perfect size for a kitchen towel.  I made this one for a friend, backing it with linen to make it a little more absorbent and substantial.  I also added little ribbons across the back upper corners so she can hook it over a cabinet knob or add a dowel rod to hang it on the wall.  I hope it makes her happy every time she sees it!

  1. I remember that special dates were sometimes embroidered (like a chain or stem stitch over the number) in a contrast color. It didn’t “jump out,” but when you noticed it you knew it was different.
