An invitation to a Birthday party of one of my daughter's friends was a perfect opportunity to make something cute and fun. I've been eyeing this cute Tic Tac Toe game pattern, but made a few changes.
- Well first, color. I had to girly it up.
- I made the front and back both approx. 9x9 squares. I didn't like the idea of piecing together 9 little small squares to make the front. I just crocheted single crochet rows on top of the pink to make the divisions. Pretty easy.
- I left one end open when I sewed front and back together, as a pocket to hold the pieces.
- Instead of X's and O's, I made flowers and leaves.
I wasn't sure if the gift needed explanation or not, but luckily my daughter was right there at the moment of present opening and announced loudly..."ITS A TIC TAC TOE GAME!!!" Mom seemed worried that it was fragile, but I assured her that all my crocheted creations are kid tested and well handled during the manufacturing process, so no worries.
