My Spooky Tarot Bag

What do you do with leftover wool?

Personally, I love turning it into all sorts of bags and purses. And when I recently discovered a skull pattern in a book, I decided to knit a special bag for my favourite Tarot deck, the Bohemian Gothic Tarot.

The easiest way to knit a bag is by just making a start and let the needles and your imagination guide you.

The yarn of this bag is for size 4mm needles, 35 stitches width x 30 rows.

The picot edging and handle are crocheted. I added a loop and button on the back for closure.

Meet Frank...

This is Frank. My ex boyfriend.

I knitted this spitting image of him over 25 years ago, when we were together.

Some people say that I could now use this doll for voodoo purposes, but I have no intention to do so. In fact, if Frank had a knitted image of me, I'm sure he'd use it as a voodoo doll...

When I found him recently in my son's bedroom, I remembered that I used to enjoy knitting, so I went to my nearest Hobbycraft store and bought some wool.

The result is a jumper, some purses and bags, a scarf, a shrug and lots of other stuff.

I've rediscovered my passion for making and creating things, so Frank deserves this special place on my new blog about all things creative.

Thank you, Frank!
