Hey there! I’m Jessica. I’m excited to be here at a guest post. Thanks so much for having me Heidi! I started my craft blog Just Enough Style about a year ago to share the things I make. I hope you’ll stop by often to check on new things I’m making.
I’ve had this idea in my head for a while of a shapes and colors matching game. Yesterday, I was finally able to make it. It’s pretty self explanatory but I’ll include a mini tutorial for those of you who want some instructions.
- Felt in various colors
- White or cream felt for the cards
- Scrap fabric for the back of the cards
- Fabric for the bag
- String or ribbon
- Sewing Machine
First off decide what shapes and colors you want to use. I didn’t use a pattern for any of the shapes but if you needed one I’m sure you could just use some clip art to help you.
Next cut out 2 of every shape and color sew them onto some cream colored felt. I used a face card as a pattern.
Once you have all your shapes sewn on the felt it’s now time to make the back of your cards. If you wanted to you could just leave it felt but I wanted to add some color. Sew your shape to the fabric right sides facing out. I left a little edge on the back fabric and used my pinking shears to add some texture.
That’s it! Now your ready to play!
When your done you can put them in this little bag for easy storage. The great thing about this matching game is that it has shapes and colors. It’s a great way to help your little one learn colors and shapes in a fun way.
I hope this made some sense. As this is my first ever tutorial. If you have any questions or need some help please don’t hesitate to ask. Happy Sewing!
