My first few steps in to DIY were chess set's. Somehow it is easy, fun and there are many different was to do it.
This fabric chess I made mainly for portability.
A list of things you need
- A Band of Velcro (as broad and wide as you wish your pieces)
- Neocolor wax crayons
Step 1: making the board
I located a simple chess board vector graphic and formated it to the appropriated size.
Given that I already knew what kind of velcro tape I had available I resized it to fit with that one.
If you buy everything from scratch I am sure you will see more possibilities.
Also I wanted it small and light so I could easily carry it along in my bag.
Then I taped it on to the felt and started working row by row.
Cutting & Colouring
I used black felt so I had to cut and colour the white field of my board.
