Happy New Year to one and all! We wish you a year full of aloha and prosperity!
As 2024 rolls in, Sue has created a wonderful watercolor calendar for you all, full of nostalgia and whimsy as teddy bears frolic throughout the year. This year, Sue has created corresponding embroidery patterns to go with each month’s illustration. Digital downloads of the patterns and calendar are available for purchase in her shop.
First off, the Teddy Bear Watercolor 2024 Calendar!
The calendar is formatted to print on both sides of your paper, and if you would like it to be like the calendar in the pictures below, you can take it to a professional printer to have it bound.
As you can see, each month has one of Sue’s original hand-drawn and painted illustrations.
Even the cover is hand-drawn, painted and signed by Sue. For best printing, card-stock paper is the best option.
Alternatively, you could print the pages out in sizes that work for your journal.
If you’d like, you can also print out the individual illustrations to frame as artwork. Again, card-stock is the best option for printing.
Below, you’ll find photos of each month’s illustration along with a link to the corresponding pattern, in case would like to stitch any of these.
