Dragon Dice Bag

Ever wanted to have a dragon to keep your dice hoard safe? Here’s a pattern so you can!

We’re big fans of TTRPGs in my family. We have a lot of time playing the games together, but we’ve also had a few people develop a bit of a dice addiction. Oops. Since our shiny math rock hoards were starting to get a bit out of control, I decided we needed some new bags. After far too long spent searching for something perfect, I came to the conclusion that my perfect dice bag didn’t exist. So I made it myself.

Hi! Working on your super cute dice bag dragon. Working the hind legs I noticed the rounds jump from R12 to R15 (no R13 or R14). Should there be 2 more even rounds or are the numbers just off? Thanks!
