Seller Spotlight: Sew Geeky Bags

Get to know the talented artists behind our top-notch collection of table top accessories.

Last time we spoke to Veronica Leonard, who makes gorgeous campaign journals and RPs an orc mage with a tragic background

This time we’re talking to Rhiannon McKinnon, who runs Sew Geeky Bags. 

As the name of her business suggests, Rhiannon makes some truly spectacular hand-made dice bags. Take a wander through her store and you’ll find reversible options emblazoned with Star Wars characters; Batman artwork or pirate flags. Drawstring bags covered in Celtic knot-work or pokeballs, and a slew of rather magnificent, pocketed bags in a range of spectacular fabrics. 

We’re a massive fan of her bee-themed pocketed dice bags because bees are amazing little critters, and bright yellow is an undeniably happy colour. The pockets are a god-send too. Especially if you’re one of those people that likes to hoard all sorts of mismatched dice. (guilty!)

But honestly, all of her products deserve a spot in the limelight because they’re beautifully crafted and incredibly fun. If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas gift, you definitely can’t go wrong with one of these.

But we wanted to dig beneath the listing, and shine a light on the woman who makes it all possible, so we asked Rhiannon to sit down and answer a couple of questions:

Hi Rhiannon! We’re in love with your dice bags. Can you tell us a bit about how you got started, and how you ended up sewing these wonderful creations?

My crafting started as a child making jewelry but has evolved into several things.  Sewing has been the one constant thing that I have stayed with, and dice bags are my absolute favorite thing to make. 

Coming up with fabric combinations and styles of bags then making them a reality is the best way to earn a living in my opinion!

Definitely feeling your point about the overwhelming collection of dice! Fascinating to know that it was an organic process too. Do you have a favourite bag?

My favorite bag is the original one I made as a prototype for my biggest size.  It is teal and black galaxy print, and it is so big it can even have spell cards or other things needed for game night tucked into the center if you don't want to take that many dice to a game.  

It was made initially because I wanted to have something for people like me that have more than 20 sets and want to keep a large amount organized into one bag.  It has become my most popular size, so it seems many people agree!

Bigger is always better when it comes to dice bags! What about out of the workshop? What do you do when you're not crafting?

I work from home, in the master bedroom of our house that has been converted into the creative room.  My roommate does other tabletop crafts and we love to be in here together working away at things.  Our cats sit perched on their trees and supervise, occasionally reminding us to take breaks.  

A lot of my work is customized bags that people order through social media so I am surrounded by fabrics, cut pieces for orders, and my computer as well as sewing necessities.  It really is a full time job.

Picking up on that point, where do you get your inspiration? It must be hard to stay creative when you’re sewing all day, every day of the week?

My inspiration comes from a few sources.  My love of tabletop games and dice, my attachment to certain streamed games I am a fan of, and the interactions and ideas of my commission clients.  I love to create a bag for a specific character or class, or one that combines someone's love of the games with other interests they have.  I also have a fascination for fabric itself, which leads to having a wonderful selection on hand for sewing!

And when you’re not crafting?

When I’m not crafting, I am usually playing or planning for a tabletop game, searching for new and different dice, playing fetch with my cat, reading, or fabric shopping.

When you’re gaming, who’s your favourite character to RP?

When I am not a GM for one game or another, my favorite character to play is my Tiefling Sorcerer named Fable.  She is snarky and can't be bothered with most things.  She's a bit like a young adult version of Wednesday Addams, and has no trouble taking care of herself.

She sounds like a handful! And a tough character to play. Speaking of adventures, where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years I truly hope to still be doing what I am doing now.  I'd love for times to be more stable and comfortable, but be able to continue creating as I do for people, and making a living in my happy place.  I feel happiest in life when I have creative outlets, and it is such a bonus when that is also my work.

We couldn’t agree more! Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us, and happy crafting from the BoH team.
