Fun and Festive Sewn Travel Games

By: Becky from Patchwork Posse

If you have family vacation plans in the works, you will definitely need a few travel ideas for kids. These Fun and Festive Sewn Travel Games are portable activities that will keep the children busy for hours. While the family is waiting around at a hotel or campground for the next activity to start, pull out these fun travel games. You can teach them how to play checkers or start a tic tac toe tournament. This is a great little quilting pattern for beginners to work their way up to something bigger.

Fun and Festive Travel Games


  • 2-1/2″ X 2-1/2″ squares {can be matching or not}
  • 9 patch quilt block + strips of fabric to enlarge block
  • Pocket fabric 7″ X 7″
  • Ribbon ties- 2> 8″ each
  • Velcro 6″
  • Button playing pieces or rocks, pebbles, bottle caps or whatever you have that you’d like to use for you playing pieces



  1. Sew 8 squares across by 8 squares down.  Total of 64 squares.  You can use ufo 4 patch blocks {as long as they are all the same size} to speed things up


Tic Tac Toe

  1. Sew borders around the 9 patch block until it measures the same size as the checkers side



  1. Sew velcro on one side of each piece.  Make sure they are centered and at least 1/2″ from the top edge {you don’t want to the velcro to get caught into the seam}


Finishing the Game Bag

  1. Pin one pocket right sides together to the checker side.  It will need to be 1″ from the side and the velcro will be next to the seam you are sewing.

  2. Sew the other half of the pocket to the tic tac toe side
  3. Open the pocket and line up with the other pocket.  Pin all the way around the game

  4. Pin the ribbon between the checkers and tic tac toe quilt blocks on the opposite side of the pocket
  5. Sew all the way around the fabric game, leaving a 3″ opening on side of the pocket open for turning

  6. Sew the opening closed and stuff pocket inside -inbetween the lining and the fabric game
  7. Sew a finishing stitch all the way around the game- start and stop at pocket hole.  DO NOT sew pocket hole!
  8. Stuff the pocket with your playing pieces
