I decided to do the calendar - as my first little project for our new house (specifically, for my office). My only complaint was that the dimenions and res. were a little off, but that’s what I get for printing through Wal-Mart I guess. I ordered a 20 x 30” poster print for about $17. Then I bought my 20 x 20” frame at Hobby Lobby. Unfortunately, no IKEAs in Idaho, but this frame was about the same price as the RIBBA shadow box so I won’t complain.
If I could do it again, I would probably reduce the size of the images so there’s more white space, like the one below. Although, the big pix are fun too.
Ok, so again, I don’t sew, and I don’t even have any kids yet, but I’m digging this idea. It could work as a gift as well. I discovered it on a friend’s blog, and determined I was going to do it some day! The pattern is $6.50.
