FNSI

Saw me finish off what was the result of an idea that I had when I was settling bub down to sleep during one point of the night when she last stayed with us.    I often have a "light bulb" moment during the night and this one was to use up some of those ever increasing scraps and novelty fabrics.   So I started up a production line of rummaging through fabrics, cutting
Assembling  and pinning the three layers together
Sewing around each one and clipping the corners
Turning each one inside out, sewing the bottom seam closed, a quick iron and ending up with a game of Memory.

Now at this stage I think that bub is a bit too young to grasp the concept of the game however the "cards" can be used to identify objects, colours and maybe even play match up the pairs.    The best part is they will not rip or tear, no dog ears will appear, should one get lost a quick replacement can be made and when needed a toss in the washing machine.

So that is what I did last night and now I am off over to Sugarlane Quilts to do a bit of blog hopping and have look  at what everyone else  was busy doing.

Thanks again Wendy for organising another fun night.

See you all next month for another productive sewing night  and in the meantime happy sewing all.

I love that idea, I used to play this game with my children when they were little and they loved it.
