It was through Pinterest that I discovered this gorgeous Memory Game made from Liberty fabric... LOVE! I had to make it... I had all of the materials that I needed and it was the perfect way to use up scraps that were too good to part with.
Honestly I could photograph this fabric all day long. I love the brightness in colour and the delicate floral prints. There's a mixture of 1930's Reproduction and pretty finds made at various craft shows. The tutorial itself was so straight forward and easy to follow. It does take a little time to cut and sew all of the fabric and felt pieces into 3 inch squares but I kind of enjoyed the challenge.
All up I made a set of 20 matching squares. I chose a gorgeous mustard felt colour as the back and used contrasting mustard coloured thread for the border on the front of the square. I finished my fabric squares off using my pinking shears - I kind of like the fancy zig-zagged edges and it'll help to keep the materials from fraying too.
And what did Sunny think?
I'm pretty sure she liked it! I've made a few more as gifts to give away in a drawstring bag.
