I whipped up some very simple little tic tac toe games today for our Operation Christmas Child boxes. Thought I would include instructions in case anyone is interested. They would make cute stocking stuffers.
I used 2 different fabrics from my fabric stash. My board is a solid color cotton and then the other 2 pieces are printed cotton.
1. Cut a 5 x 5" square from your solid color fabric. This is your board piece. Use a fabric marker to draw on your tic tac toe grid (making it 3 x 3'). Note: I sewed on the grid on my practice game, but prefer the marker for durability.
2. Cut an 8 x 5" piece and a 4.5 x 5" piece from your printed fabric.
3. Now fold the 8 x 5" piece in half, so you have 4 x 5" recatangle. And do the same with the 4.5 x 5" piece, so you have a 2.5 x 5" piece (this is your flap).
4. Now you need to stack your pieces. Place your board piece on table with grid facing up. Take your flap piece and place it on top of your board aligning the cut edges of the fabric (it's important NOT to put the folded edge at the top). Place your last piece of fabric on top of you other 2 pieces aligning the cut edges at the bottom of your board piece (again making sure your folded edge is facing toward the top).
5. Pin your pieces and the sew around all 4 sides using a 1/4" seam allowance. Clip corners.
6. Turn right side out. Iron your seams and the top stitch around all 4 sides using a 1/4" seam allowance. Now you have a cute little tic tac toe board and the pouch can house your game pieces so they don't get lost.
I was able to make these at no cost because I used fabric scraps I had on hand. I also already had the rocks. I think it's cute using buttons too.
