First test of a dice bag pattern I am working on Cheesy If I can work out the little kinks here and there, and get over my hatred of pinning/sewing curves, I will hopefully be selling these at some local conventions and gaming stores! Two stores have already expressed interest! The bag stands on its own, whether empty or full (these pics all show it empty), is fully reversible, and has the drawstring come out of the top edge instead of the side. The bottom is round so no corners for small dice to get lost in! What do you think?









Does anyone know how to make curves work out well without having to do this?

I love your bag.  The Clover company makes yo yo forms that are very easy to use.  They may not have the size you want but if you get one perhaps you can make a bigger one out of cardboard.  Good luck!

the trick way i was shown how to make round bags like that is to cut your straight pieces a little too long initially, sew them from flat with your circle on top, and sew them almost all the way round before stopping and sewing your side seam to make it the perfect size to fit on your curve, it's a bit of a faff but it works every time and you don't need even one pin, not sure if that makes sense in words, i might have to draw a picture lol x

Wow that's a lot of pins!  I sew lots of curves and never use that many pins!  For that size circle, I would probably use maybe 6 to 8 pins, I think.  Otherwise, you can't put your sewing machine needle down anywhere, and the presser foot is pressing on the pins rather than the fabric.  I have always felt that you need the pins only to hold stuff in place enough so that it doesn't get totally out of place.  I then take my time sewing around the curves and move the fabric into place with my fingers if need be.  As long as the bulk of the fabric is pinned in place, I know I can't get too far off track. 

Hiope that helps.

The bag is cool, by the way!!
