Yearbook Committee Memory Game
My parents came to visit recently and brought me some goodies. Among them, my mom gave me a lot (A LOT) of fabric that she no longer feels inspired by or has space for. I ended up having a busy weekend getting to know my new craft room better, i made quite a few projects - one of them being this one. Since i'll be heading to a friend's place soon, to meet her latest child, i wanted to make something for her older boy, who just turned 4.
Seeing this fabric inspired me to make a game for him. Do you remember that game "Memory" that is a card game where you had to find two matching cards surrounded by others that are all face-down? I thought this would be a perfect use for this otherwise strange fabric - like, why have a category called "Future Hacker" and since when is "Trendiest" a goth cat decked out in black and piercings?
Anyway, i made 28 cards and used some good linen to add weight to the backs. After sewing the cards inside-out, i then turned them right side out and sewed the bottoms shut. I even found an adorable way to store them - in this old Blueberry Tea wooden box. They fit perfectly in here! I hope my little friend likes them as much is i did making them! Oh, and thanks mom for the lovely new selection of fabrics!
