I made this perpetual calendar for my marvelous IYP swap partner, onegroovyday. I was inspired by a pattern in the book, I Love Patchwork.

This was an enjoyable project to plan out and put together. All of the fabric covered buttons got to be a pain but it was still fun picking all the various scrap fabrics. The buttons are attached with velcro circles and I used twill tape for the month labels. There is a big grommet in the top for hanging.





I ran out of fabric covered buttons so I had to make one "filler" out of a real button. OH NO! I just realized that OGD is going to need 2 more fillers for the month of Feb! Duh!


Thanks for looking!

I love love love the colors in this. And the design and the fabrics.

I just adore the whole thing! I think the real button as a 'filler' just makes it more adorable.

I thought about making some with crowns or maybe little gift boxes or something on them for just that purpose. I love the idea.

It looks like I need to send OGD some additional filler buttons for Feb so I might just have to try that fun symbols idea while I'm at it! Smiley

Thanks for the lovely comments!

I'm inspired to try other forms of perpetual calendars. Maybe one made from matchboxes??
