Handmade christmas #2 and how I did it

Memory Game

PVA glue
3 inch mdf squares 3mm thick
rotary cutter
cutting mat
fabric scraps
fat quarter of fine or no pattern backing fabric

Step 1
cover one side of the blocks with PVA

Step 2
Put the two blocks glue side down on the wrong side of some scrap fabric. Using your rotary cutter, trim off excess fabric.

Spread a layer of PVA over the top of the fabric.

step 4
Let them dry

Repeat step one on the other side of the block then place them on the wrong side of the fat quarter. Trim excess with rotary cutter. Lining them up makes it easier to trim.

Here's some I prepared earlier

Each with matching drawstring bags. I used this wonderful tutorial from Curlypops. I'll be using it for lots more gifts too!
