My name is Becka Rahn and I am a geek for fiber art and technology. My own art work is a fusion of high and low-tech techniques - digitally printed fabric, laser cut bamboo and acrylic combined with hand embroidery and weaving.
I grew up in Rapid City, SD and spent my very first paycheck from a summer theater job to get a sewing machine, which I still have. Every surface of my house is covered with something-in-progress all the time. I am not kidding, just ask my family.
My day job is as an art teacher and administrator at a fiber art center, where I teach sewing, felting, digital & technology skills to beginners of all ages. (www.textilecentermn.org)
I have designs published in 101 One Yard Wonders and its sequel and you can find all kinds of tutorials, art and random thoughts, links to me at Ravelry, Spoonflower, Etsy and more at my blog: www.beckarahn.com
This game was a big hit with my nephews and I hope with yours too! A simple old fashioned game with no batteries, flashing lights or plastic parts!
This .pdf file includes all the patterns and instructions to make your own Rocket Toss Game. The game is made up of rocket ship beanbags and a galaxy play mat with planets and stars. You can adapt game play in many ways to make it fun for toddlers and their older siblings, too. Finished play mat is approximately 42 inches square. Each beanbag is about 5 inches.
Materials needed include a variety of mostly scrap fabrics, a sewing machine, iron and ironing board. The instructions are illustrated with step-by-step photos and full sized patterns. Suitable for beginners or more experienced stitchers. Detailed materials list is included with the pattern.
The instructions include 6 different ways to play the game which you can mix and match to make it as easy or as challenging as you want. (Even little ones can use it as a play mat for make believe play until they are big enough to keep score.)
