The calendar is set up as a sheet of paper with a project on it, one project every three days. I expected the project cards to be on card stock or at least glossy paper, but the paper the projects are printed on is more like unbound book pages, I would estimate its a bit lighter than your standard printer paper. In other words, slightly cheap feeling, as if it won't hold up if I want to save the pages of the projects I like unless I do something to preserve them, such as put them in a folder or laminate them. I would have given it 3 stars had I paid full price for this reason alone.
More than 100 projects are included in the calendar and the majority of the projects look quick, easy and fun. Most of the tutorials for these projects can be found for free online since this calendar is a collaboration of the free tutorials of craft blogs from around the internet. However, its nice to have them all in one place and doled out as year progresses. It is a good collection of projects for beginning sewers or experienced seamstresses who just want something quick to whip up to get the creative juices flowing.
Buyer be warned, there are a few "no-brainer" projects such as hair bows, personalized guest towels, headbands and yoga totes. Definitely stuff you could figure out on your own and not anything new or innovative. If you're looking for over 100 original and innovative projects look elsewhere. If you want 100 projects to get you sewing again, this may be right for you.
This will be a staple for my home office desk! Creating pretty and useful items is truly fun I can enjoy for the rest of my life ;-)
Also, the projects range from decent to "who wants that?" I'm sure you've already come across many of these projects for free on the internet or in other crafting books.
Skip the calendar and buy yourself a new craft book instead. You'll be glad not to deal with the mess that is the calendar. (And you'll get projects you may actually use.)
