Tarot Bags-Full Moon and New Moon

Knit from a wonderful bamboo and silk blend yarn, with little vintage copper buttons. I made this (accidentally?) on corresponding Moon cycles, finishing the white bag on the second night of the Full Moon, and the black bag on the New Moon. Didn't even realize it until weaving in the ends ... had a big "huh" moment. Don't you love synchronicity?
They are pretty big, roomy enough to hold two decks each, or a deck and all the lovely ritual gear to go with it. Not sure when I'll be making another, so for now they will just be available in our Etsy shop, and not on the main site.

Even with our current class schedule, I was hoping to start a Stitch n' Bitch (Witch n' Bitch?) circle in the area. It would be a great way for the local magical community to get to know each other outside of a ritual setting, especially for those of us that don't really like the environment of most Open Sabbats, and those bloody awful New Age love donation classes, lol. Let me know if you guys are interested!

Witch n' Bitch, I love it! Those bags are beautiful too.

That is a great title and the bag looks sweet too! They say that Witches are crafty, but I must've gotten late the day they issued that power because I can not stitch a thing :(

I can make some cool candles though. I guess I should be thankful for that.

Aw, thanks you guys! I would love to see your candles sometime, Magaly :) Candle making is a lot harder than it looks!

Nice Carmin! They look quite pretty. Bamboo is such a cool fiber - I have some towels that I just LOVE that are bamboo. :o)

Frankly I like "witch 'n' bitch." ;o)

I've done some cross stitch, but I'm better sewing with hand than on a machine. And frankly I envy anyone who can do what you do! I just wish my mama had taught me. :ol

Cheers, Milaka
