Felt n’ Fabric memory game

As you know, Christmas is coming and this year I wanted to do a few DIY projects for gifts.  I saw this memory game on PurlBee.com and thought I’d try it for my 1.5 year old niece!

I got the pack of coordinating fabric on sale at Joanne Fabrics and purchased a 1/2 yard of purple felt to go with it.  I cut the felt into 3 inch squares and cut the fabric into 2.5 inch squares.

I found using “new sew” glue helped secure the fabric in place on the felt square before doing a zig-zag stitch around the edge of it.image_4

After I sewed on the backing, I used pinking shears to create the ravioli edge on each square.  (I found it easier to do this step after the squares were sewn together than before.)

Since I had a lot of leftover fabric, I made a simple lined bag to put the pieces in.  This bag ended up being a little too large for the pieces I created but it’s still cute!  (I didn’t follow a pattern but used the same technique that Christie used for her easy diaper bag tutorial on lemon squeezy home.)

I think my niece will like it!
