A fabric Scrabble(-like) board is very portable. You can fold it up and put it in the bag with the letters! So I decided to make one with a CNC embroidery machine.
This tutorial is for the Singer Futura 250.
This is quite difficult. Before you begin, look at your life. Look at the choices which have brought you to this point. Look at the money in your wallet, and consider buying a real Scrabble board. Think about how easy this would be if you could use a bigger embroidery hoop on your machine. Consider just doing this with a ruler and a fabric pen.
Now that that's out of the way, let's get to Materials.
Step 1: Materials
-fabric the size of your scrabble board
-a CNC embroidery machine
-thread in light blue, dark blue, pink, and red. If you want to be fancy, I guess you could add black and white.
