Fabric Scraps Memory Game

Hey there, Skip to My Lou readers!  I’m Becky from U Create. Like any sewing gal, I have plenty of fabric scraps.  So, I am excited to share with you a fun DIY Memory Game I made for my daughters using only my fabric scraps.

3x3 fabric squares for memory game

Supply list:

  • 3″ x 3″ printed fabric scraps (make sure you have a set of each pattern)
  • 3″ x 3″ solid color squares for the backing
  • 3″ x 3″ flannel or felt for the inside
  • pinking shears
DIY Matching game

Step #1:  Assemble the squares

Assemble each square set: print-flannel-backing. This is a good time to make sure you have a match of each print.  I assembled all the squares before I did any sewing.

Step #2: Start sewing

Start sewing in one corner, go all the way around the square using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

Step #3: Grab the pinking shears.

Using the pinking shears, cut all the way around the square.  This not only adds a cute zig-zag look, but ensures the fabric won’t fray.Match Game Sewing tutorial

Step #4: Put the squares in a cute bag or box…or make one.

We keep our game in a little pouch or wristlet that my daughter found at the mall.  But you could easily make a fun envelope or clutch for this cute little game. This memory game is a great handmade gift for any little one.Children's Matching Game
