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!
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.
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!
