Do you have little ones in your family who LOVE to play tic-tac-toe? We do! Since I bought plenty of orange, yellow, green, and white felt for my citrus coaster project, I decided to use it to make a birthday gift for one of these sweet little girls with a giant orange slice gameboard and lemon and lime game pieces. And how serendipitous to find an orange slice notepad in the dollar bin at Michaels for keeping score! 🙂 At first, I was going to make a bag out of my citrus fabric to hold everything, but then I figured out that the gameboard itself could be the bag with the addition of ties. It worked! Now I’m imagining all sorts of other themes . . . a basketball gameboard with different colors of “team” T-shirts for the game pieces . . . a Disney fabric gameboard with Mickey and Goofy game pieces . . . the sky is the limit! You could also make them different sizes and even add velcro to the gameboard and pieces to play it in the car. Other ideas are welcome! ♥
This is so stinkin cute!! I love it. VERY creative…pinning now! 🙂
Aww . . . thanks, Danielle!!! I’m sure you’ll have one in your house one of these years! 🙂 xoxoxo
What a fantastic idea & such great fun!
No little ones around to share with, but enjoy your marvelous creativity.
Thank you! Sometimes I just wake up with ideas and they work (and sometimes they don’t!). 🙂
great idea! it turned out so cute!!
Thank you!!! I wasn’t sure since I was making it up as I went along! 🙂
What a fab Idea
I love this! Such a great idea, and easy too! I am always looking for handmade gift ideas and this will be pinned ASAP:)
Thank you! I hope you get to try it and post it! It’s wide open for themes and designs! 🙂
Incredible idea. That is adorable. Plus, it’s no mess! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you! Hopefully it will be so much fun to put back together after playing that the kids will do it! 🙂
I think it will be! That’s the genius of it. It’s a win-win.
I want this for our upcoming road trip. So cute!
Thank you! It really wouldn’t take long to make one with simple flat pieces of felt with a theme your kids would enjoy. I was just on a roll with those embroidered coasters. 🙂
Oh, and I’m looking forward to trying your felt once I run out! Such beautiful colors! 🙂
This is so bright and colorful. The pieces look big enough that maybe they won’t get lost. I love it. Can you imagine making some to donate to a children’s shelter? the kids don’t have much room or anything to call their own. Might have to maybe add some velcro to keep the pieces in. How big is it when it’s open?
I made the game pieces the same size as the coasters I’ve been sewing (the size of a peanut butter jar lid), so the gameboard is 18 inches across to accommodate the pattern. I love your idea of making some to donate! Thanks for thinking of that! 🙂
That is the cutest little thing! I love those bright colors. Well done.
Thank you so much! It was fun . . . I’m sure I’ll make some other versions. 🙂
Cool! And it’s looking nice 🙂
Thank you! I have all sorts of ideas for other versions now! 🙂
Cute and creative!
Thank you! I can’t wait to give it to a certain adorable little girl! 🙂
Love this summery twist on the game. I did a valentine that was a paper variation of tic tac toe for my husband this year — he loved it! http://mapetitemaisonverte.com/2012/02/03/diy-xoxo-tic-tac-toe-valentine/ Can’t wait to see what other stuff you come up with!
I LOVE that! You always have such creative ideas! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
Another super cute idea!
Thank you! I just have more ideas than time, don’t you? 🙂
Always! It’s how I spend my lunch hour at the job that pays the bills – working out ideas and planning projects!
Wonderful! I’m going to file this idea away for my son for next year. Although I’ve got a niece who would love it NOW. Hmmm. How to make the time…
You’ll have so much fun making it! I can’t wait for the birthday party to give mine away! 🙂
What a darling idea! Thanks for sharing!
I love that idea! Really cute!
Thank you! I’d never really sewn or crafted with felt until now, but it’s fun! 🙂

Thank you! Yours is really fun to read, too! 🙂
Oh this is so cool…
Thank you! I gave it to my granddaughter for one of her bd gifts last weekend and she LOVED it! 🙂
My son loves this game, I just might try this idea except maybe something more 5 year old boyish 🙂 like web’s and spiders 🙂 since Halloween is on his mind lately.. great idea!
