My 15 year old son, Ben, is a Yu-Gi-Oh player who attends tournaments on a weekly basis. We talked about handy ways for him to store his cards and the handful of dice that he usually brings with him to the tournaments. He has a nice plastic box for all his cards, but his dice were just rattling about. So we discussed various options for storing/transporting the dice. We decided on small crochet pouches made of cotton yarn in all sorts of bright colors. He wanted pouches to share with his friends, so I got started making these cute pouches.
I use a light weight, soft, unmercerized cotton yarn. It comes in so many wonderful bright colors, so it is perfect for both boys and girls. I made each pouch in 2 colors, and Ben got right on making color combinations. I think that most any colors work together, especially with projects like these. As I were sharing pictures of the pouches online several people asked me for instructions. I got right on writing the patterns for these pouches.
The pattern set consist of 2 patterns. One pouch has a flat round bottom which makes it perfect for standing. The other is made as a flat rectangle, perfect for lying flat in a card box, or other game box. After the bottoms are made the pouch patterns are basically the same. Both patterns also include instructions on how to make the pouches larger so they can be used for other things, such as bingo gear, or a small purse for a little girls.
The patterns are sold as a set of two via Ravelry
We also sell the finished pouches here at We-R-Soto. The price starts at $4 per pouch (plus S/H). Colors depend on availability, but contact me and we will see what we can work out. Leave a comment or contact me through PM on my Facebook page.
Not only can these pouches be use as dice bags for the avid Yu-Gi-Oh, Dungeons & Dragons, or Yatzee players, but you can use them for so much more. How about little clothing bags for Barbie’s dresses and shoes, a special button collection, your marbles, jacks, coins, or rock collection. Maybe a special piece of jewelry. Make the pouch a little bigger and you can use it for bingo gear. For travelling you can use it in your suitcase for any small items that might get lost. These pouches have so many uses. What would you use your pouch for? Leave a comment and tell me all about it.
