Small bags for gaming pieces

These are simple items, born out of necessity. I purchased a number of glass, wooden and marble pieces which I planned on using for period gaming. I needed some place and manner to store the pieces and so I decided to use up some of my scrap material which I never throw away. These are simply small hand stiched pouches made of felted wool and ornamented with braded cord and tassels.. An additional braded cord was used for the closure. All the bags are made of the same scrap wool. The varying sizes are solely based on the size of the scraps I had. I altered the tassels and cords used so that the contents might be distinguished more easily.
