This Matching Game DIY is perfect for learning and made to be durable to last for several years of abuse from kids! While I’ve opted to match lower case letters with uppercase letters. You can do shapes, colors and other images!
For this project you will need:
4 ( I opted for 2 sheets teal and two sheet cream) 12″ by 19″ sheets of wool felt ( some wool is needed for the iron on – I love this place for felt)
White or black Everyday iron on
Sewing essentials ( Pins, scissors, thread, sewing machine)
This Design Space File that I have all set up for you.
Matching Game DIY Instructions:
Step 1 – Cut out the materials
I have the felt shapes (hexagons are all set and ready to go for you in design space. They are purple and peach in color. Using the rotary blade, cut out all four sheets.
You should have a bunch of hexagons!
Set the hexagons aside.
Switch to the fine point blade and cut out the Heat Transfer Vinyl.
Weed the vinyl.
Step 2 – Add the Everyday Vinyl to the matching game pieces
You can do several pieces at a time. Layout the color of matching game that you want the letters/ images to go on.
Cut the letters / images apart and center them on the felt.
Using the correct setting on the EasyPress adhere the Iron on.
Warm peel the transfer plastic.
Step 3 – Finish the pieces
You can technically glue the felt backs to the pieces – but if your kids are like mine…. they’s peel them apart! The best way is to sew them together. This makes them less flimsy, and last longer.
Match up one of the pieces with iron on on it with a blank (for me I made the back is a different color than the front)
Using and edge foot stitch around the outside with a straight stitch to finish the DIY matching game.
Since this takes a little time – my advice is to do it in batches.
