The A-Z Guide to Charm Bags: Part 1

I adore charm bags, I really do. They’re easy and quick and fabulous magick for a modern lifestyle. They’re like little sachets of potpourri setting out to change the world…

So, I thought, why not start a whole collection of charm bag recipes? And thus was born the “A-Z Guide to Charm Bags” broken into two parts (so that each conveniently holds 13 because every witch knows it is a most excellent number.)The A-Z Guide to Charm Bags by The Witch of Howling Creek

  1. 13 Charms in one day! What fun I had reading them. I try to hand sew my charms, so it will take me a long time to make 26, but I may just pick one special one out and try it form each group. Can I link back here if I take a pretty picture?

  2. Is it wise to do more than one charm bag at a time? I would love to do one for home, one for the office, etc. What are your thoughts on this?

    • I don’t see a problem with doing multiple charm bags at once. The key is to be in the right mindset for the purpose of each bag. So maybe it would be best to do bags with similar purposes in one setting so you don’t end up with confused intent.
