Calendar tea towels are a popular go-to gift each holiday season. This year, the creative calendar submissions can be purchased as tea towels, fat quarters to sew, or as wall hangings!


Overview

What inspiring illustrations will you create to symbolize the coming year? It’s fun to dream about what possibilities a bright new year can usher in and that may be a starting place to inspire a motif for your calendar entry. The art you create is entirely up to you and if you need a calendar file to get started, click here !

Have a calendar tea towel design from last year in your design library? It can’t be submitted for this weekly challenge, but it’s a good reminder to upload a revision with 2022’s dates for future customers. Cheers to a new year ahead!

All wall hanging challenge entries will automatically be previewed on a Spoonflower wall hanging during voting. Visit our help center to learn more about the ins and outs of formatting your entry to ensure a picture-perfect preview!
