Pattern Description:

Way back in the early eighties we played a game called Chinese Jacks. Everyone had a set of jacks - customized in your favorite colors, of course - and if we had five free minutes we plopped down on the floor wherever we were and played a few rounds. Chinese Jacks was an American eighties version of a very old game called Five Stones (or Knucklebones, or Jackstones, or a kajillion other variations). You can find the rules online.

Part of the fun of Chinese Jacks was making your own set of jacks, in your own favorite color combinations. Five Stones is also a game where you can (and should) make your own set. It's easy and pretty fast.

Materials:

  • scraps of fabric
  • rice, beans, or plastic pellets

I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
