A new dice bag

Ho hum, I'll just sit down with the red box and think about a little dungeon crawl when...
Arrrgh! its not only the dice that have it in for me, its the bloody dice bag too!

 I made this little critter to hold my dice after seeing a monster dice bag on pintrest without any links other than just the image. I mostly followed this tutorial at Tallys Treasury until section 14. Then I added teeth made from off white felt and just sewed the red lining in behind them. This was possible because the fur fabric hides a multitude of sins stitching wise. Karina came up with the little bulges for the eyes then stepped in after some colourful language to actually machine them. I hand stitched the eye bulges on and added the ribbon.
I'm really pleased with how it has turned out and I just need to name it but this little critter will have lots of fun sat at my elbow. If you have any suggestions for its name, pop it in the comments
