I made myself two very cute dice bags with this pattern. I made the smaller one with a satin lining that unfortunately didn't work great, but that's more because I'm inexperienced working with satin and I'm still trying to learn how to keep it from fraying. I made the larger one with a cotton lining, and it holds up amazing. I used it to temporarily hold all my toiletries during a camping trip last weekend. Turns out, it was a great way to see how strong it was. Am considering making these for any friends that ask. If I do I will certainly tell them about thie PDF.

Great pattern and easy to follow pattern. My husband really wanted a custom dice bag and was enamored with the idea of the cork bottom when he saw these, thankfully our local Joannes had some! Made the large size and it's quite roomy! Easily fits a couple D&D card decks and some dice!

Extremely easy to follow. One thing I did was to make duplicates of the full exterior and interior and then cut out the actual darts to use as a tracing stencil for marking the sewing lines on the darts.

The directions were easy to follow and the creator was responsive through email! I doubled the dimensions for the largest bag and it turned out great!
