So in the very near future (target is Friday) I’ll be embarking on Phase 1 of my #250DiceBagsChallenge, wherein I am going to make and attempt to sell 250 dice bags with the proceeds going towards upgrading my sewing machine. Aw Yiss.
I finished the first batch of 50 bags today, so I took the time to document the process. It took me while to come up with this pattern since I’m a weirdo perfectionist sort of person, and it’s a bit complicated with lots of fiddly little steps.
These aren’t the greatest photos, but my studio is in the basement where it’s cool, so that’s where I stayed (it’s currently 41C with humidity, so dark & cool basements are where we live right now).
First off, the finished product. These bags are 3″ wide, 5″ tall, and 2.25″ deep. They are fully lined (and reversible), have no exposed seams, and are freestanding (meaning they stand up on their own and stay open). They comfortably hold 70-75 dice, but you can cram more in if you need to.
So, here’s a very quick walkthru of how these are made…
So that’s how I make dice bags. Obviously they’re not just for dice — they’re super cute and can be used for lots of different things!
Feel free to ping me on any of the social medias (or email) if you would like a custom dice bag made — I can make them bigger than this, and I can get all kinds of different prints and styles of fabric. Ok!
