Three-in-one game board: part 2--checkers

The other side of the board looked like this:

You can play both chess and checkers on it. I first glued on strips of denim (from jeans) to make a border. Then, I glued on tan and brown squares to make the grid.

The most tedious part of the checkers game was making the individual pieces. I cut out lots of red and blue circles. Then, I stitched two circles together to make each piece. They are slightly larger than a quarter.

I decided to paint a crown on one side of each piece. I used gold fabric paint for this. It was a lot of fun to do, but couldn't wait to be done to send off to each family.

Next up...the last part of the game--chess!
