Bag of Holding Drawstring Sack Crochet Pattern

This is a simple bag that I made to hold dice – but you could easily adjust it to fit just about anything: toy soldiers, gemstones, makeup…

I also chose a bit of my handspun for this, and I spin pretty thin these days, so a worsted will work up quicker and provide more structure than a thinner yarn.

I wanted the bag to hold the dice, yes. But I also wanted it to be able to lay flat and provide a good sized surface upon which the dice could be rolled. I determined the proper sized circle by pinching up the edges around the dice. When it felt comfortable, I began the “cinch” row.

For me, that was at row 17.
