Description:

He's not plush and he doesn't want to be your friend. But he might just mess with your mind. He's not plush and he doesn't want to be your friend. But he might just mess with your mind.

To make each polyhedral die: cut out its set of faces along the black seam-margin lines and sew along all pairs of sides with matching labels (in any order you like but following the edges of the printed area as closely as possible). For tossable dice: understuff the polyhedra with lightweight filling (so they won't cause real-world damage and will settle properly on a face). For juggling dice: use slightly heavier filling material, eg dried seeds.

On a fat quarter of quilting cotton you get the main D6 and one bonus juggling-size D6 but to make the D4 you will need to stitch together two halves of the #1 triangular face. On a fat quarter of cotton sateen (or knit) you get the D4 in full as well as the D6 and two bonus juggling dice. The full yard contains one of each of the five regular polyhedral dice (platonic solids) along with as many bonus dice as I could reasonably pack into the remaining space - more for sateen than quilting cotton. The D8 is the only one which permits a counter-changed colouring. The D20 can be coloured as 5 sets of tetrahedral faces. The D12 requires a minimum of 4 colours but looks better in 6.

The last time I made some sets of these (for the babies of fellow geeks), about 15 years ago, I had to use normal, plain fabrics. Now, thanks to Spoonflower, I could do polyhedra with sharks, turtles, holly, worms or any other suitable tessellations in any colour scheme.

sef says: My baby play-testers mostly tended to chew the D4 or grab one corner and hit people with it. Personally, I'd toss it in the air with a twirl rather than rolling it. A lightly stuffed fabric die is not the same as a heavily solid solid (and even those skitter rather than roll). So it shouldn't present the same in-house safety hazard as other thrown items - unless you aim for the carefully set out array of gaming figures on the table, of course ... Otherwise, I'd suggest using the D8, D12 or D20 as a D4 (with the application of relatively simple maths).

anoxos says: This pattern is awesome! The only thing slowing me down on ordering is that the d4 doesn't make a roll-able die. :( Is this something that could be fixed?

sef says: I haven't finished assembling my own set yet but I've cut out and pinned together each of the main polyhedra to check all their edges match up as intended. I also tweaked a few colours which had wandered a little further from their previous printed states than I wanted.

sef says: It's here! It seems that Friday is Spoonflower delivery day - regardless of the ordering day. The only exception has been the single swatch. Now I have to test them all. I may be gone some time ...

sef says: Order finally(!) shipped. (I've been waiting very impatiently for this one and it still has a long way/time to go.)

sef

sef says: Order now placed. So, for anyone who cares(!), the countdown to availability (ie printing + shipping + testing delay) has started.

sef

sef says: The yard version is now uploaded. I just have to decide what else to test/print alongside it (because the transatlantic postage is rather a high proportion of the cost).
