Help launch my line of awesome, handmade gaming gear! 

Hi, I'm Chelle! 

I'm turning to Kickstarter to fund creation of a set of dice bags and other hand crocheted gaming accessories. This funding will allow me to focus on producing these bags quickly, and with the highest degree of quality crafts for the lowest price. 

The finished products will each be hand made. Each will be one of a kind, although they will be similar to the examples you see in the pictures below, as well as in the video. If you have special requests or questions, please feel free to message me. I'm always interested in brainstorming new designs! 

Everything I make is unique, and if you have specific ideas or requests for color, size, etc. please let me know. Some options or requests might cost a little extra if they're very extravagant, but I'm also excited to try new things! 

Each finished product comes with a pattern for the item you've ordered, to use if you crochet. For character plushies, I'll include a generic character pattern which you can modify to make new characters.

$5: DIY: You can order a pattern in PDF format for one of the basic bag designs. 

$20 tier for basic sizes, $35 for large size (holds double the dice)

Basic dice bags come in 4 styles: Sushi, Fruit, Potion Vials, Bombs

  • Each holds about 20 regular sized gaming dice
  • Potion vials and Bombs close with corks
  • Sushi and Fruit close with a crocheted flap

$30 tier for basic sizes, $45 for large size (holds double the dice)

Deluxe dice bags come in 4 styles: Eyeball Monsters, Cthulu, Treasure Chest, and Meeples

  • Each holds about 20 regular sized gaming dice
  • Treasure chests and Meeples close with a buttoned flap
  • Treasure chests also hold about 275 Magic cards 
  • Eyeball Monster and Cthulu close with a drawstring

$75 for one- groups of five for $350 

Your character in crocheted form! Send a picture, drawing, or description of your character, and I'll turn it into a plushie about 10 inches high. Details will be created using polymer clay and other findings. You can order an entire adventuring party of 5 characters for $325, and $65 for each additional party member beyond the 5th.

Please email first if you would like to discuss a specific idea. 

Add-Ons:

Extra bags can be included at the price listed!

Large Orders:

To get more than one bag just add:

$18 for an additional basic bag/$33 for an additional large basic bag

$28 for an additional deluxe bag/$43 for an additional large

Kickstarter limits this to ten total items per backer, so keep that in mind!

Special Requests:

I can crochet just about anything- if you want something special for your pledge shoot me a message and let me know!

Shipping is included for US backers. Backers in Mexico and Canada should include an additional $5 to cover shipping costs. 

BACKERS IN ALL OTHER COUNTRIES PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE BACKING.

I use acrylic yarn for maximum durability, and to avoid potential issues with allergies. 

Crochet bags and character plushies may be spot cleaned or hand washed as needed with soap and warm water. Please allow to air dry to maintain maximum quality of the products. 

Risks and challenges

I've practiced using the patterns I have designed several times, and know how long it takes to create each item. As I do all of the work myself, I don't anticipate any problems. Materials will be purchased up front, and are consistently priced, so there isn't much chance of my costs increasing.

If I receive a very large volume of orders (and I hope I do!), I'll create new tiers with updated expected delivery dates.

Backers outside of North America should contact me directly to discuss shipping costs. International backers who pledge at the listed costs without including extra will be responsible for paying the actual shipping cost before their finished product can be delivered.
