Introduction: Crocheted Animal Crossing Bell Bag D&D Dice Bag

About: I am a 17-year-old maker who likes to program computer games, crochet all things amigurumi, and make up my own board games and card games. I also compete in swimming and have a black belt in Taekwondo when I …

When getting into the role-playing game of Dungeons and Dragons I decided I wanted to make my own crocheted dice bag, that would be inspired by one of my favorite Nintendo games, Animal Crossing! The bag works like a drawstring and can hold anything you want. Not only that, but you can also have it finished in only 1-2 hours making for a great afternoon quarantine craft. :)

Pattern Notes:

Tip: This bag is the perfect size to hold dice for role-playing games like D&D.

This pattern will be worked in continuous rounds.

Use a stitch marker to keep track of which round you are on.

Each bell bag will be one-of-a-kind.

Assembly instructions can be found at the end of the pattern.

Have Fun!
