 This started when I realized I had a lot of dice. I wanted to make bags to hold each set I had collected, buuuuuut I had a hard time finding the perfect sized bag. Most bags are meant to hold an entire collection, which are usually less...excessive...than mine. I also like to organize things, so individual bags make it easier to find the set I'm looking for. 

The first thing I made were little cloths bags, which turned out really well. Then my boyfriend, who is obsessed with leather, suggested I try making them out of leather. They came out well, but a typical closure with string, paracord or buttons just wasn't doing it for me. At which point we decided magnets are cool, and incorporated a magnetic closure into the design. The first few came out nice enough that we decided they might be worth selling. 

 This dice pocket~pouch is sized to hold a handful of your favorite dice safely and comfortably. It is hand-stitched in a way that ensures the pocket~pouch will lay mostly flat with the dice inside. The top closes flat using neodymium rare earth ring magnets. The magnets are strong enough that the pocket~pouch will stay closed if shaken. The only time they open is with a quick forceful shake downward or by squeezing the top of the bag just right. Our test bags have survived the horrors of my purse without spilling my dice, so I can confidently say they will not open outside of extreme conditions.

Every part of this pocket~pouch  is done by hand by yours truly. Each bag is sized, cut, stamped and sewn by hand. Every single bag has a high degree of individuality due to this process, making it one of a kind just for you or the gamer in your life. 

It is also the perfect size for most sets of dice that can be purchased, including the standard 7 piece 16mm polyhedral set, 12 piece 16mm D6 set, and 36 piece 12mm D6 set. 

 

 The rewards for backing this project include either a black or brown leather pocket~pouch. 

The Super Early Bird is $10 and even ships free. Never again, not even for my mama. There are 10 available, 5 in each color. 

The Early Bird in $15, again with free shipping. This reduced price will never be offered anywhere but here on Kickstarter. There are 20 available, 10 in each color. 

The Kickstarter Special price is $20, shipping free. Have you noticed I love free shipping? This is a discounted price from what we plan on selling the pocket~pouches for in the future. There is no limit on this reward.

After this Kickstarter is (Hopefully!) successful I will be opening an Etsy store. The money raised with this project will go towards proper tools and fun colored leathers for future projects, as well as towards new design ideas to enhance your gaming experience.

Risks and challenges

This project is hand made, therefore while our shipping goal is February, if there is a larger than expected number of backers, shipping to the kickstarter special orders may be delayed. Shipping will be dictated by earliest backers.

The material has already been bought, so the products will be made as the orders come in. This will be done in effort to keep from falling behind and having a large number to complete after the project is over.
