Here’s an easy little gift to make from your fabric scraps. Use your scraps to make a classic memory match game. It’s super cute and one of a kind. This does not take much in terms of sewing ability. It’s very simple.
Felt squares (about 3 inches by 3 inches… all the same color)
sewing machine is nice to have, but not necessary.
1. Prepare your fabrics- Cut 3 in by 3in squares of felt (all the same color)… cut your fabric slightly smaller, 2 1/2 in by 2 1/2 in. I used about 10 different fabric patterns… I cut two squares from each pattern… so ended up with 20 squares (10 pairs).
2. Layer the fabric square on top of the felt, right side up. Lock in your stitch (using a straight stitch, sew one or two stitches and then reverse for one or two stitches)
3. Zig Zag stitch around the entire piece. Repeat for all 20 squares
Now you are ready to play memory match. Shuffle the pairs and place them face down on the table. Take turns picking two at a time to find matches. My kids totally LOVE playing this game!
You can totally make this game to fit your style or the style of the person you are making it for. You can use random fabric scraps or go for a theme (colors, cars, bears, etc.). Be creative and have fun!
