I have a ton of fabric scraps! In fact, I have so many that I sometimes don’t keep the smaller ones (gasp). I have been doing a lot of Scrap Busters lately and even did a round up of my favorite ones. Here is a fabric scraps memory game I shared over at Skip to my Lou on November 14th. It’s a huge hit and I know you’ll love it.
My 7 year old daughter LOVES those cardboard memory matching games…you know the ones! They’re often found at the dollar store and the cardboard pieces won’t lay flat or a younger sibling/pet has found one or two and now there are teeth marks. Well, in an attempt to solve all of life’s problems…just kidding, I am just trying to make a fun game for my daughter by using up my fabric scraps. I had to add a little drama though, right?
- 3″ x 3″ fabric scraps (make sure you have a set of each pattern)
- 3″ x 3″ solid color squares for the backing
- 3″ x 3″ flannel or felt for the inside
- pinking shears
Step #1: Assemble the squares
Assemble each square set: print-flannel-backing. This is a good time to make sure you have a match of each print. I assembled all the squares before I did any sewing.
Step #2: Start sewing
Start sewing in one corner, go all the way around the square using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Step #3: Grab the pinking shears.
Step #4: Put the squares in a cute bag or box…or make one.
We keep our game in a little pouch or wristlet that my daughter found at the mall. But you could easily make a fun envelope or clutch for this cute little game. This memory game is a great handmade gift for any little one.
