This is a seriously simple small project to make and great for all those small scraps.
So choose some nice fabrics, iron them and make a template for your squares.
Cut out 2 squares per fabric. I did mine 7.5cm x 7.5cm
Find a fabric for the back that you will use for all the backs of the squares.
Cut out the backs too.
Sandwich the back fabric and the pattern fabric together best sides together. Sew around the edge leaving a gap to turn it round the right way. Trim the corners.
Turn the right way round and iron.
Stictch around the edge, paying particualar attention to the gap.
And thats it! Simple! Give to your little one to play with.
Why not... add numbers or words to each sqaure?
How to play pairs:
Turn all the sqaures round the wrong way, making sure they are all mixed up.
Take it in turns to turn over 2 sqaures, if they match you get to go again. If not its the other persons turn. Keep going until you have the winner, with the most pairs.
What not make a small bag or fabric envelope to keep them in.
