Gobble Gobble Gobble

Supplies:
Felt- fall colors
Felt glue
Googly eyes
Ribbon
Thread
Dowel
Cut a piece of felt 30x37- or make it as big or as small as you want it. I had plenty leftover from my Halloween Advent.

Cut out your "Give Thanks" or Thanksgiving, Gobble Gobble. I used my Cricut to cut out the letters on paper and traced them onto felt.

Cut out feathers. I just eyed them and cut out at least 28, or you can do enough for the whole month
Arrange the feathers how you would like them. At this point place Velcro behind each feather.



Fold an inch of felt at the top over and sew straight across, this will make a little pocket to put you dowel through to hang it.



When you take the feathers off you will see your Velcro and the next step is to glue them to the felt. This keeps them in place when sewing them.






While you're waiting for the glue to dry sew "Tom" onto the felt















Sew the Velcro that is on the orange felt, I found that the glue doesn't stay put when you put the feather off.

Cut out your numbers and glue them to the feather. You can arrange them however you like. You need 1-28 but the date obviously will vary.


I sewed a piece of brown ribbon on the bottom of the calendar just spice it up a bit, you can use ric rac around the whole square or leave it empty, you can really make it your own. You can even put your family name on the bottom.

Oh, and when you put it on the wall, use a skinny dowel to keep the calendar lying flat against the wall! I also sewed a brown ribbon to the top to hang on the wall.

  10. This is adorable. And original! I wish I'd seen in years ago when my kids were small. It would make the perfect teacher gift (who says you have to wait until Christmas?) and having so many 'feathers' would probably mean each kid would get a chance at 'plucking' one, LOL!

    1. Sorry I haven't checked my blog in awhile. I don't have a pattern I just free handing everything. It's pretty easy. Just get your felt out and have a go at it.
