I know this is primarily a reading/writing blog, but once a month I indulge my sewing side. You can find all my quilting/sewing updates here.
This month I didn’t get around to any quilting. My attention has been on NaNoWriMo prep instead. I did get a small project started and finished though!
Fabric Memory Game
I made a fabric memory game for a baby shower gift earlier this month. The entire project took me about 2.5 hours. I mostly followed this tutorial. My squares were 4 inches before sewing. I used 100% cotton flannel for the front and back, plus some random leftover batting I had on hand in the middle. This was a project I’d been wanting to make for a few years, but hadn’t had a good reason. When I found out a friend was expecting and the shower was only a few weeks away I decided it was the perfect time to try it out.
I’m very pleased with how they turned out. I wrapped them in a green ribbon and added them to the books (Good Night Gorilla and Snuggle Puppy) and hand knit hat I had on hand. The Mother to be was pleased with the gift, and I made sure a lifelong friend had some cute handmade items for their new baby.
Have you done any sewing or other crafting this month? What craft projects do you have on the go?
