I bought a FQ of this Alice in Wonderland Kokka fabric with a specific idea in mind. To use it as the cover for a portable Tic Tac Toe board. It has the whimsical kiddie graphics that are signature to Kokka, and that wonderful linen blend. I love the heart on Alice’s skirt.
Roan has had some interest in playing Tic-Tac-Toe lately. We had been setting up sticks and using bottle caps. He asked me to make a board and the wheels started turning.
I used felt for the actual board and placed magnets on both the buttons that I covered and inside the board. Sewing the Alice and Wonderland fabric as the outside cover. I knew I wanted simple colors and went with black and red.
If I were to make it again, I would actually skip the magnets and make a pocket for the pieces. I see some of these as future Birthday gifts.
We’re still working on the strategy of diagnal.
