This was one of my nesting phase projects. Due to the start of the pandemic and the unknowns, I went on my mat leave early and had about 2 months at home before baby arrived. I am not one for sitting around, so I quickly busied myself with some projects!
This memory game was so fun and simple to make. The most time consuming part was the cutting and sewing but was definitely not hard, considering I just made squares. You could easily make these cloth cards in to any shape you wanted though!
Time to complete: Plan a half day to work on this at least. I did it in chunks over the course of 2 days.
- Fabric for the front and back. I used a canvas material for the back so that it was more durable and I used white flannel for the front.
- Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) for the matching shape pictures. (or you could buy fabric spray to iron on your own shapes made from fabric.)
- Sewing Machine
I used my Silhouette to create and cut out the shapes onto Heat Transfer Vinyl. I had a starter package of 12×12 sheets of vinyl that came with my Silhouette, so I was able to use those to make my shapes all different colors. If you do not have Silhouette or Cricut device, I am sure that you could also use spray on adhesive to attach fabric shapes that you cut out yourself.
