d6 Dice Bag

20171231-Crochet d6 dice bag

I bought a pattern set online for shapes that also happen to be dice shapes, which I thought looked like lots of fun. Then as I was making the first one I started to wonder if I was making a novelty item or a functional one. Functional is better for sure, and I had the idea to keep it hollow, leave a flap un-sewn and add buttons, and voilĂ  – a dice bag!

d12 Dice Bag

On this one I left 3 sides open so there’s enough room to reach in. This required 3 buttons. The test is to put dice inside, button up, turn upside-down and shake. If no dice fall out, you win!

I Made this d12 Dice Bag for my nephew who plays D&D and also crochets. More winning!

Not the greatest photo I could have taken of this 3D object. It’s gone to a new home now, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that this is a d4 shape.

While I was making the d12 Dice Bag I noticed that at this stage it looked like an Angus-sized hat. He looks very dashing, don’t you think?

Net Shopping Bags

A few years ago I made one of these on a whim and gave it as a gift. Sadly I hadn’t taken any photos or properly written down the pattern. The recipient sent me photos of the original Net Grocery Bag and I was able to recreate it. I made two more and gave them to her this year.

Blue & white, net shopping bag

These compress nicely so you can stuff one in your purse or backpack or whatever, and it expands to hold a lot of groceries. It’s sturdy and I designed the handle to be big enough to get up on my shoulder when it’s full. If you need that to be bigger, increase the handle loop (R21) as much as needed.
