This cute birthday countdown calendar plastic canvas pattern features a clown holding balloons. It is easy to stitch and would be a great way for your child to keep track of the number of days until their birthday!
I created this birthday countdown calendar pattern well over a decade ago when my kids were small. About a month before their birthday, we would hang it in their room. The numbered balloons would get changed every morning and their excitement would build as the celebration approached.
When I decided to list the pattern in my Etsy shop, I decided to update it a bit. Although the main design has stayed the same, I re-did the clown shoes. I also added bits of texture (on the clown outfit and hair) with some plastic canvas specialty stitches. I love how the new version turned out.
The numbered balloons are attached with Velcro, which makes it easy for kids to change them each day. The back of the birthday countdown calendar has Velcro strips so you can store the extra balloons so you won’t lose them.
