This is a second version that I made as a Christmas present in more festive colours than the first. My kids love playing noughts and crosses though cheating is more the order of their games and hey, its more fun that way anyway. With this game board the pieces are tactile and a riot colours. They learn about waiting their turn and something about building a strategy. Well, sort of, they are still really little.
This board is finished with a bias binding for a neater quilted look and the board checks and edges are embroidered with a coordinating embroidery thread. There is cotton pocket to hold all the pieces when not in use and all pieces are made from recycled felt which is padded with wadding.
This is a really lovely piece to make, I’ve tons of ideas for creating it in different ways with different colours, fabrics and style, if only I had more time. I will definitely be making more anyway and if you like it, please make my day and order one, just for fun.
