A must-have for any gamer.
This project was inspired by a series of vintage themed videogame paintings I did a while ago.
I used black felt for this project but you can really use any colour you have lying around. It could probably take less than 40 minutes depending on your sewing skills.Sorry about some of the bad photos,my camera isnt very good.

    Now your ready for the stitching.

    With the white embroidery thread,either machine stitch or hand sew 2 long lines,parallel to each other.
    (I did machine stitching to speed up the process)

    Then stitch 2 small lines on either side of the rectangle as pictured.
    (I handstitched these lines since they were much smaller)

    Next,stitch a line through the middle(i machine stitched)

    Sew a very small stitch near the centre of the middle line,to represent playing ball.

    Lastly,thread a long piece of ribbon through one of the holes and knot off the other end through the other hole,then your done!
