When I saw the Take A Hike fabric from Dear Stella I immediately thought of my nephew. His family hikes, camps, and spends their summers at a canoe base. With my nephew’s fourth birthday coming up I decided to use the fabric to make a concentration/memory game.
I found this tutorial and used it to make a set of 20 game pieces and a matching bag. I wasn’t able to cut the center pictures at a consistent size because of the size and spacing in the original fabric. The whole things has a rustic, slightly wonky feel, which I’m okay with.
E and I tried it out. She’s too young for the proper memory game, but we had fun with a simple picture-side up matching game. She also enjoyed stacking and buttoning practice.
And now, I have a few more things to prep for Kids Clothes Week. There have been such fun guest posts over on the KCW blog and I have way more ideas than can be accomplished in seven days, but oh well. It starts on Monday and I’m excited for some sewing and admiring the clever work of others.
