I got the pattern for the book from Sew Mama Sew. I knew as soon as I saw it that I had to make it. My youngest likes to play with her brother's tangrams, and that always causes a fight between them (not that they ever actually get along...) So when I saw it on the site I thought "This will be the perfect Christmas gift for Hannah... and myself".
And now that I have Googled it, you can find printable Tangram shapes, seriously... just Google it. Or do the square/triangle method. Now with my googling I have come to think that maybe I did not make a Tangram book?? I see none of the shapes I have cut are in any of my search results. So what are my shapes? I am guessing they're from math class and used to teach children how to make patterns!?? That is my best guess.
Anyway here are my shapes:
For my shapes I traced the pieces onto the non-stick side of fusible web then ironed those onto the wrong side of scrap pieces of fabric.
Next you're going to use a dab of a child's glue stick (I used Elmer's purple that dries clear) to stick your cut shapes to your fabric strip. Glue all of them on there in a row, fusible web to fusible web:
What is extra perfect about this is that I used leftover flannel that I had used to make Hannah a pillowcase and quilt for her room, as well as a matching bag. And now she has a matching toy!
One more thing crossed off my Christmas to-do list.
