Vintage Linen Calendar

Remember the linen calendars that granny would have hanging in the kitchen on a wood rod? Well I purchased some vintage ones recently and began making things...like this tote bag.

Love the whimsy saying "them that works eats" on this one!
It's from 1969. A good year...

I used a vintage pillowcase as the lining with a hanky as an inside pocket.

The ties are from a vintage tablecloth. So fun!
