So I saw the tutorial for a 20-sided dice bag over on evilmadscientist.  I knew I had to make it for my honey.  He's been gaming for a couple decades.  It was only about a week late for his birthday.  

It took quite a few hours.  Think about it--20 pieces for the outside, 20 for the lining, 20 of interfacing.  Then I decided to put it an invisible zipper that was too long.  I don't know if it was because it wasn't a regular zip, or because of the angles it has to go around, but it's tricky to open.  I still think it looks better.  The lining was also a real bear to deal with.  I think it actually ended up bigger than the outside when I first sewed it up.  I redid it and managed to get it to sit inside reasonably well.  And I really wish I had found stiffer interfacing.  But we uses whats we gots.

I used my husband's 20-sided die to make sure I got the numbers on the corresponding faces.  I even made them face the same directions as on the die.  Yes, I am made of awesome.  It was all worth it, because he loved it.  When I gave it to him, he popped all his dice in it right away, and took it to gaming that night.

Awesome!  I've been meaning to make this exact same thing.  Yours looks fantastic, even better than the one on the tutorial.
