Make a quick DIY matching game with your scraps of fabric for an easy sewing project and a fun game! Let your kids pick out their favorite fabrics!

With a new baby around, my toddler son has needed some extra love and attention. It’s been pretty hard to divide my attention between a baby and a toddler.

I decided to make a simple fabric matching game that he and I can play together, and it used up a lot of my fabric scraps. He can almost do it on his own if he’s just sorting or matching without turning it into a game. It was quick to sew, and it would make a really great handmade sewn gift!

Have fun playing this matching game with your little one! It’s so fun when they are wearing something that matches the matching game because you use up your scrap fabric!

This is such a great beginner sewing project or an Easy gift to sew!

My son is too young to play this game by himself or even really understand it, but he enjoys telling me if they match or lining them up in a train. It’s just something fun for us to do together. He can even sort the different pieces into matches.

Quick DIY Matching Game


Cut a bunch of fabric scraps all the same size square like 3 inch by 3 inch. Do your best to cut them out of the same part of the fabric print so that they match.

Iron all the of the pieces onto the fusible fleece.

Quick DIY Matching Game

Cut each square out with the fabric pieces as the guide.

Place each square onto felt and pin. Sew around each square with a zigzag stitch. (I somehow didn’t get a picture of this step!) Cut out each square. You finished!

And then they can turn into coasters when he's done with them!

Great! I want to do one of these for my Bubu too!!

What an awesome idea! Love it!

Genious! Love it!

Love it! My daughter and I play 'match' instead of memory. We turn all the pieces facing up and just try to find the pairs.

Great idea! I made a cardstock matching game and it just wasn't holding up at all. Little fingers can't flip those over without tons of bent corners. I'll have to do the fabric ones!

Great game for small hands and growing minds!! I've linked to your tutorial on Craft Gossip:
