This was made for @roler in the Ongoing Ornament Swap. That swap has been a blast!
Both @roler and I like D&D, so I decided to make a 3-D 20-sided die. I was excited to try “paper piecing”, a quilting technique I’d never used. This was actually a little easier than regular paper piecing, because I used cardboard triangles and left them in place so that the complex structure would stay rigid.
Here’s a progress shot that shows the mess inside.
Since rolling a 20 is a “critical hit”, I added a ribbon that says, “Merry Critmas”.
This was super fun to make. It was either beginner’s luck or else paper piecing is easier with cardboard, because my second effort at paper piecing - using paper instead of cardboard - was a failure!
