Children's gifts - I spy/matching game
I made a set of I-spy/matching/memory game cards for a toddler from fussy cut fabric scraps. I have a lot of fatquarters I've picked up or received on quilt runs, so I cut my pieces 4" so that I could make 10 pairs (20 cards) with one FQ. I've seen these done with wool backing or intricate cutouts, or sewn RST and turned inside out (which I tried on another set and found it fiddly). For these I sandwiched batting and sewed around with a generous 1/4" and then trimmed with a crimped rotary blade. The only thing I might do different is square up so they are all exactly the same size, but the little one I gave these to doesn't mind.
The game can be played many ways, identifying the object, placing cards right side up and finding pairs, placing cards face down and remembering where the matching pair is, etc. The one I gave as a gift I tied with a ribbon and gave an instruction tag. A drawstring pouch would be cute as well.
Anyone have any other fun children's gifts they've made from fabric?
