So let's say I work for a fabulous graphic design, print and fabrication company...



And after a route job the production manager (knowing what a crafty recycling, re-purposing freak I am..) brings me these 'garbage' pieces of 1.5" acrylic.



So what do I do??? I get one of my designers to make decals depicting the heads of my nephews..



Sew me up some patchwork checkerboards and Voila! Personalized checker games for each family!!

I sometimes dream of glorious fabrics only to wake, run to to my stash, and realize it's time for a trip to the fabric store...

Such a cute, creative idea. I'm sure your family will love them! I wish I would have had a set of these when I was a kid. It would've eliminated the fighting over who got to be the red checkers.  Smiley
