DIY: Checkerboard Set Sewing Pattern

Next up in my collection of sewing patterns is my Checkerboard Set pattern, including game rules. Learn how to make this set so you can bring it along to the beach or the park. Click here to purchase the PDF, which prints in 4 pages. (Update: I recently moved all of my sewing patterns to my Etsy shop.)

This set includes a game board made of 8 squares by 8 squares (a basic 64-patch block). A smaller drawstring bag holds your checkers. The patchwork game board and small drawstring bag neatly tuck into a larger, lined drawstring bag so you can take the set with you.

I added this Checkerboard Set sewing pattern to the tab at the top of my blog called Sewing Patterns. Stay tuned for more patterns coming soon!

Happy sewing!


PS – If you make this pattern, I would love it if you share a photo of your project in the Flickr group I created. Thank you!

Note: Because I create with human hands, my cutting is never perfect. My sewing is never perfectly straight. My circles aren’t perfectly symmetrical or even. And I always have threads to trim. Please don’t mind my imperfections 😉 This is just a fun project I’m excited to share with you. I’m sure there are many ways to make these zipper pouches; I’m just sharing my concept and process here.
