handmade drawstring oracle bag

With the recent arrival of my latest spirit deck and guidebook for the Sacred Creators Oracle from Chris-Anne I realised I needed something to contain the cards alone between uses rather than the lovely, but rather large, box they originally came in.

My solution was to create a very simple drawstring bag using materials from my existing stash. The project was so simple that other than some initial modification of the free pattern I found, I completed it all in just one day. The hand-stitching took a little longer (and more patience) than expected due to the type of thread I chose, but the result was worth that extra time.

Handmade using adapted instructions from Thuy Do, this natural linen pull-string oracle bag is stamped with gold acrylic and hand-stitched gold thread. With room to spare for a special crystal and other small ritual must-haves, simple grosgrain ribbon pull strings keep the contents secure inside.

If you fancy having a go at making such a bag, you can see this and more tutorial links in my MAKE*IT pin'board here.
