I've had this project in my head for a while now... My boy loves spotting animals on pages of books, we live on a small farm so he watches the animals everywhere and he adores the animal finger puppets his Nanny (grandmother) made him so I wanted to have a version of a memory game for him. He is a bit young yet for the memory bit but I think he will love matching them up! He is also a bit young for cards, I think he would just eat them!!! So I've decided to make the cards out of fabric using a "cheat" fabric panel. I couldn't believe the trouble I had finding suitable fabric! In the end I settled on the At the farm range by Lesley Grainger and I love it! The squares are a bit bigger than I envisioned but that has advantages too! The fabric turned up and I was estatic, it's just what I needed and the boy already loves it! he took one look at it and started pointing at the animals! I cut some fabric squares and he sat on the floor looking at each one, handing them to me to make the animal sound then taking it back and looking at then again! Here's hoping he will like them even more when they are done! I went through my stash and have decided to back them in the purple corduroy... Hopefully the brightness will work!
