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 this dice bag that was listed on ebay:

As well as by ChrysN's Smaug the Dragon pattern on Instructables:

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.
