Finish: Fabric memory game

???????????????????????????????

My toddler is a very lucky boy, he gets lots of presents from the whole family, and from Santa Claus! So for Christmas, I wanted to make him something special (from Santa Claus 😉 ) that would also be unique. I like games for children that are fun but also good for development, so I decided to make a fabric memory game.

???????????????????????????????

I made 24 fabric “cards”, using pairs of fussy-cut images from fabric in my stash, added a white border, a lining of batting and light blue backing. (Side note: fussy cutting is such a wasteful use of fabric! It’s the first time I’ve used this technique and I was quite shocked! Oh well, at least I have some new additions for my scraps box.)

???????????????????????????????

To keep everything in order, I made a small drawstring bag from the backing fabric to put the cards in.

By the way, my son loves his game! 🙂

      Thank you! Memory is a popular children’s card game here in France but my son is a bit small not to crease/tear cards so I wanted something a bit more resistant!

    What a wonderful gift for your son! The bag makes this game easy to take on visits or trips and keep your little fella enertained. Perhaps you can make a matching quilt with the scraps! I love the colors and patterns!
    Take care, Vickie

    What a terrific idea! I love matching games, even though I’ve never been very good at them. I probably need to play more often. What a treasure you’ve created, one to pass on the generations.
