Make a Memory, the secret project revealed.

Ok, I can spill the beans now, the cat is out of the bag . . . insert other silly saying here. Mollie of Wild Olive and I have been busily working on a project together. I had this great idea to make a cloth memory game, something that would last a while and be special because it was handmade. I sat down to sketch out some ideas when it occurred to me that she could make drawings waaaay cuter and better than I ever could, so I sent her an email and asked if she’d like to be part of a collaboration. I was thrilled when she said yes.

As I’ve said before, I’m not familiar with a graphics program, nor do I understand the magic behind making PDF patterns (both on my To Do list I might add) so I figured teaming up would solve those problems. I had the idea and did the sewing, instructions and photos and Mollie added her fantastic designs and technical know how. The PDF is for sale in my Etsy shop, as well as Mollie’s where you can check out her other fun embroidery patterns.

Remember that time I stayed up really, really late writing a post that, apparently, never got posted?

Here’s Cobyn’s counting book.  The puppy was a new idea and considering the cute fuzzy ears and floppy tongue I think he’ll be making a reappearance in future books.I used some of my favourite standard pages #3, 4, 5, and 7.  Then I borrowed from Nate’s book for pages 8 and 10.I copied Mya’s book for page 6 and 2. Here’s Cassie’s book from waaay back, just for some extra handmade goodness for your eyes.
