Way back a month or two ago lovely Sarah @ Pings and Needles had a bit of a competition... What would you make with a bag of Japanese Scraps? I said I'd make a game. Rather surprisingly I got through to the second round, which involved receiving a free Japanese Scrap Pack from Eternal Maker, and being challenged to make whatever we'd claimed we'd make when we entered...
If you'd care to look up to the tabs bit, you might spot a new page... One tutorial as requested! Sorry if it's a bit pants, it is my first, be kind! click here for tutorial if you've missed it in the tabs bit...
I love that you all wanted a tutorial with lots of pics, when I realise now that I never actually said what I was making! Thank you!!
This is what I received, to which I added 1 Fat Quarter of solid, some batting, and some ribbon.

Here's the finished competition entry... my noughts and crosses or tic tac toe game...
|9.5" quilted and bound 9 square grid with 0.75" sashing between and around squares.|
|Ribbon attached at the back is used to thread up the player pieces|
|Board with Player Pieces, 5 noughts and 5 crosses, which are 2" padded squares with ribbon loops for tidying|

|The back of the player pieces are also a jigsaw!|
