So obviously the original chessboard bandana is sadly no longer with us - has anyone found a suitable substitute? I spent a while this afternoon looking for fabric chess sets with little success. To add to the problem, I'm in the UK so the potential supplier list is smaller. I even had to import all my pyramid stashes directly to get round the EU safety test issue.
Failing the convenient materialisation of a perfect match, has anybody tried getting fabric custom printed? I spent a couple of hours today producing my version of a Martian chessboard, and am considering getting it printed on a bandana or napkin myself. They claim to be able to reproduce photos in print so I can't imagine my Martian and Lunar textures would be too difficult
I just put the top one of these two cloth chessboards up for sale in my new etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/113652429/cloth-chessboard-perfect-for...
So for one lucky person there is an alternative to the chessboard bandana.
I found black and white checkerboard pattern bandanas at the Hobby Lobby for 99 cents. They're 14 squares by 14 squares, so the squares are a bit smaller than ideal, but should still work. I'm sure creative types would have no trouble (and might even enjoy) drawing, painting, dyeing, stamping and/or bleaching the three outermost rows to leave a workable 8 x 8 playable area in the center. Check your FLHL.
