OCA Tutorial # 4 Oilcloth Memory Game by April

Oilcloth Memory Game Tutorial

Little ones will love playing this memory game, while their adults will love the durability that oilcloth provides to this classic. This 3 inch set was made for a young toddler. If you are making this game for an older child you may chose to make the pieces smaller.

1 Oilcloth Addict Charm Pack
1 Fat Quarter of Oilcloth from Oilcloth Addict
Cutting board
Rotary Cutter
Pinking Shears

Begin by choosing ten different oilcloth charms from the charm pack. Each one of of these will form one pair of memory pieces.

Using your rotary cutter and ruler trim the charm into a 6 by 3 rectangle. Then cut the piece in half, forming two 3 by 3 squares. Repeat these steps with each charm. When you have finished this there will be 20 3 by 3 pieces, (2 from each of your original 10 charms).

Now you will need 20 3 x 3 squares from your fat quarter fabric.
Begin by cutting a 3 inch wide strip the length of your fabric.

Then cut this piece every three inches to form your 3 x 3 squares.

Next, put a black dot with each one of your charm pieces with the
wrong sides of the fabric touching. Pin in place.

Sew 1/4 inch in around your square, backstitching at the beginning and end.

After sewing all of the pieces, use pinking sheers to even out the
edges and give a decorative touch.
