DIY Fabric Tic Tac Toe Game
Boy oh boy! Did you know fall is almost here? I just love this season and all the leaf piles and outdoor play it brings! Unfortunately, the season can bring in some unpredictable weather, too. That’s why I’ve got a DIY for indoor play this week – my DIY Fabric Tic Tac Toe Game!
This is going to be easy peasy to make and super fun to play! You’ll need:
- 4 yards of fabric, any type will do!
- 160 inches of soft rope, strong ribbon, or another thin fabric for tying.
- 144 yards of coordinating fabric ribbon or thin strips of fabric.
- A needle and thread to match your fabric.
Let’s get started! Cut two 1 yard squares of your fabric. Place these inside out on each other and stitch up one side. Fold them right side out, then stitch in place a ribbon on the inside of one side. Now, stitch about an inch in making a “tunnel” for the ribbon. When you get to the end, leave about a couple of inches between the end of the tunnel and the edge of your fabric. Now, turn the fabric again inside out and stitch up the next edge. Make sure your ribbon stays out so you don’t have to dig for it. Turn it right side out and again stitch up a tunnel for the ribbon about an inch from the edge. Once you get to the end of the second edge, hem it back just a little so your ribbon will pop out and your fabric doesn’t fray. Tie a knot in the end of your ribbon or attach a large bead or button to it so it won’t fall back into the tunnel. Do the same thing with the other two sides, making sure your ribbon is attached at the diagonal opposite of the first ribbon’s end. These will pull up and make your board into a fun little pouch so you can keep everything tidy.
Next, we’ll decorate the board. On the inside of the board sew or use fabric glue to attach the ribbon every twelve inches across and vertically. This will make your board into 9 separate boxes.
To create your x’s and o’s just follow along to my instructions for my fabric letters! It’s sew easy! The plastic pellets in the letters will make this a fun tossing game—and leave the winner up to chance or whoever’s the best at bean bag throws.
I hope you enjoy this fun fall craft. Do you have a craft idea you’d like me to feature? Be sure to tell me on my Facebook page!
