Play Alphabet letters.
Gather Your Supplies
*two fabrics for the 9 patch block
*fabric for the back of the game board
*1 large button
*1 hair elastic
*rotary cutter, mat and ruler
*Thread, both for piecing and for sewing on the button
Make the Game Board
Cut5 squares 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" from one of the fabrics for the front.
4 squares 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" from the other fabric for the front.
1 square 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" from the backing fabric.
2 rectangles 6 " x 9 1/2" from the backing fabric.
Position the button in the middle of one side, far enough from the edge that your presser foot will be able to stitch a 1/4" seam beside it. Hand stitch the button in place.
To make the game pieces using my freezer paper method, see the tutorial for my Play Alphabet. To make my game piece templates, I traced around a thread spool for the O pieces and for the X pieces I drew a square, then cut a notch out of each side. Remember that your game pieces will be slightly larger than your templates because of the pinked edge.
The pieces can be stored in the pouch at the back, and they won't fall out when the board is folded and the elastic is secured around the button.
