Updating the Memory Game...
I guess I'm slightly obsessed with this memory game, after I made the first one I kept thinking of ways to improve or extend the game.
When my Aunt Susan was here in July we went to a quilt store I hadn't been to called Wendy's Simple Stitches in Howell, MI (great place!) and Aunt Sue found the perfect flannel fabric for a new & improved memory game. The fabric is 'Jolly Jungle Labels' from The Hensley Studio. The coordinating fabrics are great as well.
Instructions are the same as those posted here with a few improvements: I ironed the fusible webbing onto the flannel before cutting out the animal blocks and I cut the felt squares 1/2" larger than I wanted so I could trim them after sewing on the animals to get even edges.
I absolutely LOVE how these turned out with the flannel and felt. Mom made the perfect box for the game and all that is left is to make a 'how to play' sticker and a 'handmade with love (by your Aunt A, Grandma and Great Aunt Sue)' sticker for the inside top and bottom of the box.
Now I need to make another set...
