Starry Sky Dice Tray

I hope you're not tired of seeing alls those dice related things on my blog. This time it's neither a new addition to my hoard nor more dice cups. This time I made myself a new foldable fabric dice tray. 
I got a similar one for my birthday last year that I've been using ever since. And since I really love having matching gaming equipment for all of my characters I wanted to get another one. 


The fabric that I used is from Spoonflower and I didn't use a pattern. I simply drew a hexagon on a DIN A3 paper, transferred that to the fabric, sewed the front and back together leaving a small opening for turning and stitched down the edges and the lines for folding. Added some buttons and done. It looks a bit wonky (and I really should iron it again) but I really like how it turned out.

Also these are some of my favorite dice. It's the set I use for my oldest character. A very chaotic (ex-)monk how likes to set stuff on fire and steals his enemies fancy clothing for himself.

#Document Your Life - July 2019

Here is this months "Document your life" video. There wasn't much going on that was worthy to film.

July

July was a very lazy month for me. I was on summer break and used my time mostly for sleeping in, catching up on my favorite D&D streams and having a lot of naps. 
Since I wasn't really up to celebrating my birthday back in June one of my friends prepared an awesome pirate themed D&D one-shot and we had a small get-together to play. Big thanks to all of them for gifting me not only this great adventure but also the matching minis and even new paints. The same paints I tried out a few weeks ago and loved so very much. 
We didn't go away on vacation this summer. We're maybe going to take a short vacation later in the fall but nothing is really planned yet.
Instead I spend a lot of time with some of my hobbies. I painted some minis with my new paints, I made some new dice cups, build a few more notebooks for my D&D characters and I even did a bit of sewing. Nothing fancy, only taking in a few shirts but I've been more productive in the last few weeks than I have been all year. It feels good.

Scaly Dice Cups

Do you remember when I made myself a dice cup from felt some time back? I have to admit that I didn't really use it that much. The felt was too thin and that made the cup a bit unstable. So I kept using my old leather dice cup. It wasn't pretty but it worked. Then Mr. Biest gave me his old super pretty dice cup. I loved the look of it but it didn't feel right. And since I often blame my bad dice rolls on my dice cup I decided to make myself a new one. 


I bought two blank leather cups and used my soldering pen and some paint to create these patterns. I‘m not super happy with the scale pattern on the brown one. There was a little accident with the soldering pen that I had to cover up. But it’s okay for a first try. And then I made another one and this time I also painted the leather and I really love the result.

#Document Your Life - June 2019

This months "Document your life" video is a bit shorter again. I wasn't really focused on filming that much.

June

The month of June went by so quickly. The weather went from cold and rainy to unbearably hot and right now I'm just trying to survive the heat. 
One weekend I was helping out my friends on a street festival. They're promoting the local metal music scene by doing corpse paint and handing out flyers and stickers. 
On the last day of that festival a friend and I also visited a workshop hold at the local game store to test some new miniature paints. I'm still a beginner but I really enjoyed the experience. 
In pottery class I was mostly busy with a sculpture. We were supposed to create out own chimera like creature. I chose the combination of a bear and and owl. We had to do a drawing first and then sculpt it in different version. Unfortunately there was an accident with the oven. One student put a sculpture in the oven that was way to thick-walled, it exploded and took most of the other pieces with it. That's why only one of my sculptures made it. I'm glad it was this one and now only the final glaze is missing. I also did some knitting. I started to knit something from the rainbow yarn I bought last month. 
Then there were some D&D sessions, I got a few new dice (I saw an infinity stones themed dice set on reddit and tried to recreate it) and it was my birthday. I wasn't really in the mood to celebrate so we just went out for dinner. 
Now I hope that the heat will not continue throughout the whole summer. I have another week of school and then I'm off for sic longs weeks. I can hardly wait ...
