calendar // super late pandas for july

One week into July already? This is definitely the latest I've ever posted the calendar for a month. I debated skipping it entirely at this point. But maybe maybe you might just want some pandas (adapted from a calendar in 2014) on your devices. They're pretty cute, if I do say so myself.

I also thought that it might be a good idea to share a few of the things I was working on in June. Things that weren't here on Wild Olive. Oh, and in addition to these, I'm working, working, working behind the scenes on more new things.

Sloth Snuggler

Do you ever make something that you want to gush over a little? Or a lot? I know that I just bragged on my pandas, but that's nothing compared to how I feel about this sloth I made for Hello Bee. It's designed to be a like a lovey. And while I'm not sure that it's "normal" for a grown woman to have a lovey, I kinda want to just snuggle this guy so much.

Candy Constellation Game

Over at Handmade Charlotte I shared how to make this printable constellation game. It comes with it's own sweet reward for meeting the challenge!

Glowing Sparklers

On About.com I made some embroidered sparklers for the 4th of July. But they're great for any celebration. AND they glow in the dark!

Sashiko Sachet

To help make sashiko a little easier to jump into, I designed some smaller patterns, plus showed how to use them to make zakka sachets. This one is a Japanese bunny bun!

Stitching Pouch

I've made a few stitching pouches here at Wild Olive, but in June I also made one for About.com. This one doesn't require a sewing machine, so if you can embroider, you can make this pouch! If you are a more accomplished sewist, you may want to try your hand at one of the other stitch organizers I found.

And now for some calendars!

For your home screen, these have the pandas, but no calendar, perfect for when Mollie posts them so late that a quarter of the month is already gone:
Download the iPhone Panda Wallpaper.
Download the iPad Panda Wallpaper.

For iPhone 6+, choose the iPad version. To use the iPhone and iPad versions, click the link for the wallpaper you want. When it opens, touch and hold the image until it pops up with the option to save. After you've saved the image, go to your settings, choose wallpaper, then find the image you've just saved.

You can also download and print a July calendar PDF. I recommend printing this on card stock, and then trimming it. Please, please, please will someone color some rainbow pandas?

Enjoy the rest of your July, friends!


  1. Thanks for the calendar! I love them. When I saw this post I thought "wow, I didn't even realize I have been looking at the June calendar on my phone" Then when I looked at my phone I realized it still has the MAY calendar! haha. I never even used the June one! Which is sooo cute so now I am bummed. haha..

  2. Thanks for not skipping it... I rely upon your cuteness and generosity for my calendar every day! :0)
