If you are a DIYer, you might have some fabric scraps sitting around the house. Tanya Whelan of Grand Revival Design has an ideal project to share with you: a travel checkers set you can sew yourself. So you can use up your scraps and have a great toy for the kiddos on long or short trips.
Tanya's new book, Sew What You Love: The Easiest, Prettiest Projects Ever, has some great projects for people who like to DIY, and she's sharing her travel checkers pattern for free while she promotes the book. The ladies behind Sew, Mama, Sew! profiled the book and have provided a PDF of the pattern.
The book includes an entire section of home projects, like an ottoman and a soft fabric shade. Check out Tanya's pattern for the checkers set, and if you like what you see, you can get her book at Amazon.
