A Gift For My Deck

Update: I have a few of these bags available for sale at Art Fire here! Adopt one of your own!

I have just finished crocheting a bag for my PDR deck, and I'm beyond thrilled with how it turned out! First of all, it had to be purple, so I would want to touch it every day.

Secondly, buttons and corded ties were somehow not girly enough for this particular bag, so I had the idea to use ribbon for the tie. It stays put horizontally due to the way I weaved it in.

Next, I wanted it to be multi-functional, since this is a deck I intend to use every day for a year.

So I made the flap long enough to lay out five cards, so it also serves as a spread cloth.

I'm pleased as punch with the results!

I feel like my deck affair has properly begun, with the giving of gifts!
