Valentine Felt Tic Tac Toe Game

I posted this a couple weeks ago on another blog but wanted to have it posted here too!

Enjoy!

I was trying to think up a cute handmade gift I could give my girls for Valentines Day and I thought of a Tic Tac Toe game made from felt. I knew it wouldn't be hard at all.
I bought some felt sheets at the local Hobby Lobby then I also went over to the fabric department and got a larger piece of felt for the board. I also bought a cute ribbon to use for the lines on the board.

I used my trusty AccuQuilt machine and the Heart die to cut out all my hearts so they would be perfect looking. Then I just printed out a GIANT "X" and used it as a template for my X's.



I cut my game board  15" by 15" so I was able to sew ribbon on every 5" for the game lines.
Rather than just one line down the middle I sewed down both sides so it would be flat'ish.



I wanted there to be a little bit of weight to the game pieces so I put some rice inside and sewed up the edges.
I love the Heart pieces, I hand stitched a white heart in the middle to give it some contrast.


My felt that I used for my game board was a bit wrinkly. 
I don't love that but not sure if you can iron felt??





I can't wait to give it to my girls and see if I can teach them the concept of Tic Tac Toe!

This is very cute! I love the ingenuity of making your own game board. You need to make one more "X" though to make the game fair. Hearts don't always go first. :)
