had a Passionate November. One of their passion days was Passion for Play and included in their tutorials was this one for a "tangram-esque fabric puzzle.
" I ended up making 2 sets: 1 for my brother's boys and 1 for my kids (i.e. me!)I used only fabrics I had on hand which means they weren't all quilting cotton. The only real change (other than size) that I made from the tute was that the backs match the fronts. She said she just used whatever colors and had I think 4 of each rainbow color and 18 white. That didn't make sense to me. THere are 6 of each color backing.
For Ethan and Connor (4yo and 3yo) I tried to get all the colors to be solids.
Here's the Front sides:
And more fun!
I forgot to get a picture of the bag. For the bag I just cut 18"x4" strips of each non-white fabric and, well, made a bag with them.
Russ and Alice (5yo and 2 yo) I tried to get all the colors to be patterned. These were a little bigger than the set for E&C. I learned a bunch.
This bag was bigger, I included 2 strips of the white on it as well.
These were a lot of fun to make and play with. I want to do a set sometime where each fabric is a different texture. I think that would be cool.
Thanks for looking! C&C?
