At least it wasn't mending...


Dear Son sees all sorts of crafts to make on PBSkids and Nick Jr.  Often he forgets about them before he sees the next one.  Last week he saw the Backyardigans hop scotch board.  When my mom came to visit last weekend she brought me an old flat twin sheet.



After two trips to Joann's, coupons in hand, to get transfer paper (which comes in packs of six and found out that the project called for 11 sheets), here's what we had after printing.

Not a cheap project. We are hosting my husband's family, including DS's two young cousins, so hopefully, this will get some use in December.

[Sorry, I flipped it but Blogger isn't cooperating]





Then to press - on a hard surface, "not an ironing board." Luckily we had scrap drywall pieces in the basement that qualified as something hard and smooth that allowed me to keep the sheet on the floor.  About 30 minutes later, here's the finished hop scotch board.

Head over to Confessions of a Fabric Addict for some Whoop Whoop projects!
