Have you ever seen these large checker games?
My brother got this one as a Christmas gift this past year. He has always been a big game player.
He works in Afghanistan and travels back to the US every 3 months. He usually spends a night with other co-workers in Dubai while they wait for their flights home to various parts of the World. And typically they pass the time playing games.. checkers.. dominos.. etc.
Well, he asked me to make a bag to carry the game. Do you think it's "manly" enough?
The pockets were his idea - he originally asked for a pocket for each checker so he would always know that he had them all packed. But 24 pockets seemed a little daunting. So I made 12 total - 6 red and 6 black (2 checkers in each).
What do you think? I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. He's currently home so I will get to see what he thinks about it this weekend when I see him.
And the best part - all the fabric was from my stash!! I only needed to purchase the zipper! I love when that happens.
