This week’s library books include a children’s book on making stuff with felt and an adult book on sewing your own travel bags. This travel board game prototype merges the two concepts. The game board itself is made of woven felted sweater strips, and it is complemented by a dry erase score sheet from a shiny upholstery fabric sample. Works, too! The letters are courtesy of a vintage children’s Scrabble set found at the Catlin Gabel annual rummage sale a couple of weeks ago. With hook and loop backs, the letter stick easily to the board. The pouch is made from screen door netting scraps, and zips in to form the base of the pouch. The two sides zip to close, and a drawstring closes the bag. I am excited about the concept, and want to get make more. There are never enough hours in the day!
