The Lenten Calendar
uses three dimensional symbols as well as felt symbols.  An alternate design is to make all the symbols in felt.  Patterns are included for making all symbols in felt.

     Although this calendar is designed to be made by children and youth, adults enjoy making and using it.  Each of the symbols can be enhanced or embellished with creative sewing, art or craft techniques. 

     Material other than felt can be used for symbols.  Examples: leather for the money bag, satin for the dove, velvet for the heart, gathered tulle and net for the butterfly, etc. Soft fabrics may need to be attached to felt backing to retain their shape when hung.  Optional embellishments are  sequins, beads, feathers, etc.
