I made a thing!

I made a chain mail dice bag! It's a very simple one - I made a flat sheet of European 4-in-1 weave, folded it in half and closed it up along the side, and then closed it up along the bottom. Then I threaded a shoelace through the top row of rings at the opening, and used a cord lock fastener to allow it to be cinched tight to keep the bag closed.

Now I need to decide what my next project should be. I am thinking of just making a flat sheet of maille as a kind of a stress toy - there is something very relaxing about pouring a sheet of maille from hand to hand. But beyond that, I think I want something that will require learning a new weave.

It doesn't help with you learning a new weave, but I may commission you to make me a dice bag for another game I may wind up playing in. :-)

I'd be delighted to make you something, with the caveat that I'm enough of a novice mailler at this that I'm not sure how to estimate how long it will take me to make a given piece. (The bag above took months, but I was pretty lackadaisical about making time to work on it. I suspect I'd be much more diligent about anything I was making for someone else. Plus I won't have to waste time figuring out all the stuff I had to learn to make this bag.)

I'll drop you an email and we can talk details.

I like. And nice color choices.
