Concentration or Memory

Everyone seems to have their own particular name for this game but it all boils down to the same thing…You have several cards, each of which is duplicated.  All cards are placed image side down in a random order.  A person then turns over 2 cards and if the cards match, keep them.  If not, then they get flipped back over.  You must remember the location of as many cards as you can so you can collect the most and win.   Well, my little great nephew will be 3 at the end of the year and this year he is getting his own personalized version of this game.  I saw this done with fabric instead of photos  and another similar version in this book.  Of course it wouldn’t be complete without a little bag to hold the “cards”.  I used some Michael Miller fabric for the bag.




I printed the pictures on fabric printer sheets.  I got mine at Joann’s Fabric store.  I was able to get 2 pictures on one sheet by passing the fabric sheet though again after repositioning it in the printer.  I wanted the little cards to be sturdy so I made a sandwich consisting of craft felt, Timtex, craft felt and then finally the picture.  The Timtex really gave it body.   I hope he likes it!
