My husband has a monthly gaming night with his friends and family, and he requested a dragon head dice bag, so here's what I came up with:















I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I was inspired by another dragon head dice bag that I saw on ebay, and so I decided to draft my own pattern. I used a modification of ChrysN's Smaug the Dragon pattern on Instructables for the bag construction:

Thanks for looking, and let me know if you have questions and would like to try making one of these yourself!

My husband would love this! He's a big MTG fan. Luckily for me, I taught him to sew and now he makes his own leather dice bags, wahahahaha! This is a pretty sweet one, though. Is it lined? It looks lined. I like how it looks good whether it is closed or not.

Jexxican-

It's not lined. For the basic pattern, I just scaled up the Smaug pattern by using a size P hook and using doubled-up worsted weight yarn. And just add on a few extra rows at the end to extend the neck so there's room for the drawstring. Then I used a small f hook for the eyes, horns, eyebrows, and nostril ridges.

Thanks!
I think the eyes are what really nailed it: a little sleepy, a little squinty, a little scowl-y.

Please be careful, this is my original copywrited pattern. That photo from ebay on Google search under this link is mine.

Apologies, stringsandthreads, I removed the link. To clarify, though, the pattern I used was a modication of an instructables pattern and the rest I drafted on my own, not anything from you.

Thank you for taking my pic down.
You did a great job with yours, looks like it's a big hit. I'm just trying to protect my pattern. Thanks for understanding.

Do you still happen to have the pattern for how you made this? I've take a look at the Instructable Smaug, and the head seems to be a different shape and I much prefer your little nubby horns to the flappy ears. I would appreciate any notes you could give on the changes.
