I decided to go for the famous "Tic, tac, toe" game. It will be a challenge to teach it to T.(2,5yo) and N. (almost 4yo), but I'll try. My idea was also to add a new game to our range of traveling toys.
I began with a small pouch/bag:
Then I made the tokens. Five of two different sorts. I was going to make a set of 5 flowers and a set of 5 cabbages (from L'Empreinte de l'Ange's tutorial), but T. asked for rabbits instead. Since I had half of the flowers ready, I did not make rabbits+cabbages, but flowers+rabbits. I'll find another occasion to make cabbages ;)
On the pictures above you can see the tokens before and after steam-blocking. I did not make the flowers too flat as I wanted them to keep a little bit of their curled aspect.
And finally I made the "board" with a small piece of cotton fabric, marking the lines with a simple red seam.
My favourite part of that toy is the bag. The top ruffle took ages to make but I love it!! I am quite proud that it turned out as I wanted it to!
Oh and I almost forgot to mention that I did not follow a pattern for anything. The rabbits are inspired from a tutorial posted online, but I could not find it again and I made some modifications anyway.
|Now you can go to the Museum to see the others' creations|
PS: Mon Tricotier has also made a tic-tac-toe game, I love the colours she used!
