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!
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!
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
