If you have the money and inclination, consider doing this with surface mount parts.  Atmel has parts with really reasonable pitches and 0805 caps and resistors are not at all hard to solder on either.  Here is my first surface mount project, quite recent:

I am not sure if you would save a whole lot of space on that board, but on many you save a bunch of space.
I will never ask you to do anything that I wouldn't do myself.


Ok.  I just didn't want to waste time reinventing the wheel.  I'm not an expert at Eagle so it takes me longer to crank something out.  Thanks for the inspiration though.

You could view it as an experiment for learning Eagle (that's the reason I did it except I used Fritzing, not Eagle). :)

If you want predesigned boards there's plenty on the web, just google "attiny85 pcb" or similar. eg: http://tinkerlog.com/howto/tiny25-header/

Or use perfboard. My first dev system was done that way and works perfectly: http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,134673.0.html
