1  Cheap, eco-friendly, and a few bananas short of a bunch... in Completed Projects by craftywen on: October 11, 2008 09:38:46 PM
I played Bananagrams today at a friend's and I'm totally addicted.  Of course, I wanted a set to play at home, and wasn't so keen on spending 15 bucks to get one...

Since I have a tendency to pick up Scrabble games at yard sales and hang on to them, I assembled my own set in about 45 minutes using the following materials:

144 hoarded Scrabble tiles
1 old yellow tshirt from my stash
1 nylon drawstring from DS's old backpack

I'm as pleased as punch, and fighting the strong desire to freezer paper stencil the logo into my banana bag!

I made another one...same situation, but this time it was daylight.  Modified a little bit from the first go round---this time, I sewed the channels on the front and the "lining" piece, then sewed the backing on afterward.  A little more finished looking, I think.   Also made a cute little matching drawstring bag to hold the whole thing, so I could avoid using wrapping paper.
