During the making of the backgammon blanket, Myf and I were discussing various board games. I can't wait to play backgammon with her and she tells me that she plays draughts with her dad. She jokingly asked whether I could make her a set so that we could play too-and of course I said yes!
So here we are:
I originally intended to crochet pieces to play with, using wire to reinforce it, but I felt that would be a bit hazardous so I then wanted to get some large, stackable, buttons. However, it would have been approximately 85p per button and when you need 24, it's a bit excessive. So I was a bit stumped until a phonecall with a friend who suggested using chocolate! I'm not sure how many games we'll get through before we eat all the pieces but doesn't it look nice?
I had a little box saved from some previous parcel received in the post but I wanted to make a little bag as well for the pieces..
That's Myf's last Christmas gift ready for Sunday! I should really make a start on the cleaning...
