Please!  Do pass on the name of the calendar!  They're so charming and I'd love to find all the patterns and learn to make them all!

My leaf army awaits.

Thanks for all the comments! I'm glad you like the little man Smiley
The calender is German: Blaettermaennchen Kalender (literally this means Little Leaf Men) and is Waldorf inspired I think. But the leaves are very simple to make. So, if I'm making one of the July leaves, I'll take pictures of the basic steps that all leaves follow.

Thank you Ewulotta and Linda P! I'm bookmarking this for Christmas presents! I'm hoping the gradparents are getting my kids a wooden treehouse (like a dollhouse, but it's a tree w/felt leaves) and these would be adorable in it! Thanks for the info!

Ah, this link answeres a question I had, because I was wondering if the calendar was about using actual leaves, or felt. So it's felt. Thanks. Oh man, that little Blackberry man is too cute!

Did you click on the photos?  They get bigger.  I love the little white snowflake one.  Would you use a pipe cleaner to help hold the arms and head on?  That would make them poseable.... (is that a real word?)

yes, you use pipecleaners. You fold them in the middle and twist them around two or three times and attach a wooden bead as head. The calender doesn't have patterns for the leaves, only small drawings, so you have to draw a pattern free-hand. When I'm back home, I'll take pictures.
