Checkers with the Cricut

Checkers-6

I don’t know about you, but I love a quick game of checkers! It’s even more fun when you can make your own checkerboard in any cute fabric and color scheme.  This turned out to be a Chicago Bears color scheme (totally unintensionally), but how fun would it be to make one in your school colors for a graduation party, make a patriotic one for July 4th outdoor party or even use some pretty summer fabrics to create a checker set for your deck.

Checkers-1

This project comes together so quickly and takes very little sewing experience.  I bet you could get away with hot glue if you wanted to… just sayin!

Checkers-4

I added this tic tac toe drawstring bag to house all of the checker pieces and it doubles as an alternative game.  You could also add the tic tac toe game to the backside of the checkerboard… lots of alternatives with this one!

When you are all done and ready to put it away.. it rolls up into a nice little size that you can easily store until the next game time.

Checkers-5
