In the unlikely event that any of you have a friend who roleplays to buy a small gift for, I thought I share what I've put together.
I'm referring specifically to those who do tabletop roleplaying, also known as pen-and-paper roleplaying - Dungeons and Dragons and the like. For a full explanation see this wiki page or alternatively this very accurate description, but essentially this is a game of make-believe with rules and statistics and to do it you need paper, pencils, rubbers and variously sided dice.
I made the pouches from some old muslin I had laying around and matched the colour of the dice to the ribbon I used.
First I cut 2 pieces of cloth 12" x 3 1/2", plus about 1/2" for seam allowances. I sewed 2 sides to make a pouch.
I found I had to make the inner pouch a little smaller all over for a comfy fit, but it's not essential.
