STEP 1: Clip the corners
Fold raw edge under again halfway so that the raw edge just meets up with your original pressed fold. Pin in place every few inches. Stitch along both sides with a coordinating thread color about 1/4” from edge.
Use the printed border as a guide for turning and pinning the top pocket to measure about 1”. DO NOT PRESS THIS EDGE. Just fold in place with your fingers and pin in place. If this edge is pressed sharply, then your towel won’t hang as nicely once you insert the wooden dowel.
Stitch along the top at 7/8” to create the dowel pocket.
STEP 4: Prepare for hanging
Attach the end of the ribbon on each side using a push pin.
STEP 5: Enjoy!
Now your calendar towel is ready to roll up, sign the enclosure card, and insert it all into your pretty paper box. You can tie a ribbon around it and deliver in person or tape both ends and slip it into the mailbox (USPS starts around $2 for First Class).
