AHH!! i love gameboards! have i mentioned that before? lol. ive done cards, scarbble, sorry, & now im into CHESS!! eeeeeeek!





ok so this is my tote its abut 14 inches x 10 inches. the ribbon is black and is about 32 inches discluding the bow. the width is about 2 inches. it started out to be about a 20 x 20 chess mat, then i did some fancy shabams! to make it snazzy!!

i made this from my brothers old chess mat which he recieved when he won some competition.



the button was from an old antique store. while the ribbon was ripped of an old prom dress of my cuzins.



a closeup of the button, i used a hairtie for it.

I like that it still has the chess information to distinguish it from a regular ol' checker pattern or a checkered flag!
