"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Fabric scrap memory game

Once again I found a great use for all those little fabric scraps that I find myself holding on too. I turned them into a game. These are perfect for church, or the doctors office or other places you go where the activity needs to be on the quiet side or you need to take the game home and wash them.

I made two sets.... I just couldn't narrow down my scrap pile enough so I made double the fun.





I used heat n bond on the 2x2" squares on the one side and adhered it to the white fabric. The finished squares measure slightly larger then 4x4". I sewed right sides together on the 4x4" squares, turned them inside out and then sewed around them to close up the open side. I decided not to put batting in between only because I wanted it to pack smaller in my purse BUT you surely could add some if you wanted.
Simple, fast and washable!!!
