I love it. One thing that helps edge is trimming the edges before you turn it out. All that trouble and no likey? The boys I game with are too nice to say anything mean about my crafty tendencies so I'm on the other end of the scale. I appreciate your work! Beautiful.

It's hard to make them on the smaller scale, though. Dammit.

just tell him you made it with love and put lots of effort in, even if he doesn't like how it looks he can appreciate that right? I think they look awesome! Excuse my stupidness but what is a D20? I'm foreign and have never heard that term before!

its not lame. ....im not sure what exactly they are *im guessing something similar to fuzzy dice that ppl hang in their windshield are but not...?* buuuut....whatever it is...looks good. i like the colors and the soccer ball look but the numbers give it a nice twist. and i can tell you put in alot of work cuz there are alot of sections to sew together.
i doubt your bf is a jerk or anything he just didnt realize how hard you tried....ida pulled a guilt trip or made him feel bad or something cuz thats how i am... Sad haha.

I certainly like it! My boyfriend thinks it's pretty cool, too... looks cuddley! You shouldn't be wasting your time with a boy who clearly has no taste in quality crafted goods....

Yikes, ok, I'm thrilled that everyone likes it but honestly.. don't be to harsh on the boy  Shocked
He's just brutally honest and somewhat of a perfectionist so I think the soccer ball look bugged him  Tongue When he realized it upset me ( a few days later) he took it back lol I'll just have to try to get a more dice looking version Smiley
Seriously though, he's worth crafting for anytime. Once he saw the Monster Manual Cover I made for dragonslair http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=154873.10 he had a swift change of mind about crafting hehe

I'm a gamer girl, too, and I like your dice - they are at least as angular as the plush d20 that we bought at a games store. I don't like the numbers too much though, because they don't look right for dice, too "sportsy" somehow. More what I'd expect on a football shirt. I'l love them with other numbers. I'd never be patient enough to sew some for myself. *Sigh*

Oooh, maybe it was the numbers then. I'll have to look online for other number options. Anyone have any ideas? I don't have the patience to embroider them..

As for making it crisper, I would suggest using a thin but sturdy fabric so you don't get bulk in the folds and heavy duty interfacing of some kind.
It may not be as cute and cuddly as the lovely one you already have though...

Sorry to appear a dunce but not sure what a D20 (I know it is a dice) is used for.

Anyway her in Aussie we can buy a really stiff iron on interfacing which is used for pelmets so this may be an option, I use it for my fabric postcards. It would have to be cut to the exact pattern size as it is like trying to turn a tree inside out if it is caught in the seams.  Also trimming the inside seams back to a 1/4 inch or smaller will add to the crispness of the sides.

Hope this helps
