Iron Craft #10 & Tutorial

we were challenged to make something from a fat quarter of fabric.
Since I sit in front of my sewing machine daily,
it wasn't a huge challenge for me.
So.. I decided to try to make something with fabric that was no-sew!

I found this super cute fabric at Joann's
I knew instantly that I wanted to cut it up and make it into
a soft matching game for Isabelle.

All you need is:
fabric
felt
fabri-tac glue

Cut the fabric into individual squares (or any shape you desire)
Spread a light outline of fabri-tac glue on the fabric and paste on to felt.
(Fabri-tac is amazing! It's like a cold hot glue!!)
Once dry, use pinking shears and cut pieces off felt.
Here they are completed.


A super duper easy way to make a game for your favorite kiddo!
You can do this with fabric that has a clear repeating image.
I found another one at Joann's yesterday with cakes -
how cute would that be for a birthday party?
Sew up a little bag for the pieces and you'll have one happy camper.
