Felt Tic-Tac-Toe Board

This project makes a great gift for kids. The felt pieces stick together making this a good travel game. My grandmother made a board like this when I was young, and I have fond memories of playing with my brother on family vacations. ~ Miche

Materials:

  • Felt scraps in red and green
  • Three 6 x 6 inch pieces of yellow felt
  • 6 x 6 inch piece of batting
  • Blue embroidery floss and embroidery needle (or sewing machine and thread)
  • Sewing pins

Directions:

  1. Trim the batting so it is slightly smaller than the yellow felt pieces.

  2. On one piece of yellow felt embroider criss-crosses for the game board. The example is stitched using a machine satin stitch. Hand stitching a satin stitch or other decorative stitch can also be done.

  3. Place batting between two layers of yellow felt and pin in place on four sides. Be sure that the embroidered side is facing out.

  4. Using embroidery floss blanket stitch the top edge so that the batting is enclosed.

  5. Blanket-stitch* the top edge of the third piece of felt.

  6. Matching the stitched sides, pin the third piece of felt to the other two pieces and blanket-stitch all three layers. This will create a pocket for holding the game pieces.

  7. From the red and green scraps of felt cut at least five circles of each color for game pieces. If desired cut out ten pieces of each color and blanket stitch the two colors together to create reversible game pieces.

  8. Store your game pieces in the pocket.
