How to Make a Ramadan Calendar

Today’s project is a Ramadan Calendar using 100% wool felt from A Child’s Dream. We used the Holland wool variety pack of 12″X12″ squares for the pockets of the calendar cutting them down to 2.75″X2.5″and the Premium all-wool pre-cut 18″X18″ squares for the backing of the calendar. As the video cut out before the project was completed, I don’t show how the calendar was hung. I purchased a 1/8″ or 1/4″ dowel from Michaels and cut it down to about 19 inches. I sewed a casing for it and fitting the dowel through it. I strung twine from the ends of the dowels and hung it on the wall using a Command hook. I used the Silhouette Cameo program and cutting tool to design inserts for the calendar. For Ramadan 2014 we wrote in Sahaba stories into a fold out card insert with tabs that said “Day 1, Day 2, etc.” For Ramadan 2015, we made “Make Dua For” inserts so we could keep track of the duaas we wanted to make during Ramadan. The circular wood numbers were from Freckled Fawn and the individual numbers were from Craft Cuts. Other wood veneer used (the stars near the title) was from Studio Calico. Wood veneer that wasn’t used but was shown was from the Recollections brand from Michaels Tombow Mono Aqua glue (blue label) was used to adhere the wood numbers to the felt. Other tools needed for this project: Sewing machine, pencil, ruler, scissors, straight pins and thread.
