Anyway, here's the idea. You take a large frame, remove the glass and stuff inside the frame. On the piece of glass, use a permanent marker to draw the calendar squares. On the front of the glass, you write on the month and dates so that you can change it. I used permanent marker for this as well. I found that tea tree oil removes it well. For the daily activities, appointments, etc you write on it with dry erase markers. Behind the glass, you lay a piece of light fabric or fancy paper. Then you frame it all up again.
I don't think she mentioned this, but I did a pattern for the calendar itself on the cardboard backing first. It was a smart move for me since my measuring was off a bit the first time.
The first frame was turned into a regular dry erase board. It's in my sewing room for the never ending list of projects to work on.
