We just got back from a Spring Break road trip (that was amazing and warm and wonderful) and now we are counting down the weeks until Summer Break! Anyone planning any fun trips this year? Today Katie from Made to be a Momma is here with a fun sewing tutorial that will be fun for any trips you’re taking this year. It’s a little On the Go Tic Tac Toe Game! How cute is this?!
School will be out before we know it and the summer vacations will begin! YAY! I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready for some hot and relaxing summer days! Spending any long length of time in a vehicle with our three young children can be a bit overwhelming but I have found that snacks, movies, and fun activities can make the trip much more enjoyable! This on the go tic-tac-toe game is perfect for summer vacation travel, waiting in the Doctors office or at restaurants, and just a fun game for your kids to play! It’s not only the “game board” but it also stores the tic-tac-toe pieces in the pouch.
ON THE GO TIC TAC TOE SUPPLIES:
- 1 piece felt
- 1 piece fabric
- Ribbon or strips of fabric
- Fabric Glue
- Sewing Machine
First you will need to cut your fabric and felt pieces to the size you desire. Just make sure you have enough room for a tic-tac-toe board. When cutting out your pieces be sure to make your back (felt) piece about 3 inches taller, this piece will fold down to close the pocket. You don’t have to use felt, you can use fabric for both pieces or even felt for both pieces, I just liked the look and feel of the two different pieces. I also had less sewing to do by using felt. :)
Take the top edge of your fabric piece of fold over a 1/4 inch and sew.
Using fabric glue, glue your velcro pieces in place. You may also sew your velcro to your fabric pieces for extra strength.
Place your back fabric/felt piece, velcro side facing down, on the table. Next place your fabric piece, velcro side facing down, on top of your felt piece.
Sew all three sides
Turn your pocket piece right side out and press with a hot iron if needed.
Sew or glue your fabric pieces down in the classic tic-tac-toe design.
I chose to use ribbon as it won’t fray as easily as fabric would but fabric would work fine too!
Your kids are ready to play! We used little buttons for our tic-ta-toe markers but there are others things you can use as well! My kids love the idea of painting some small rocks for their game.
