Many of the formulas offered here are intended to be placed in mojo or medicine bags. What follows is a very simple tutorial on how to make a simple drawstring bag using a handkerchief, a ribbon, and a needle and thread.

Note: You can also use a square of fabric the size of a handkerchief.

  1. Lay a handkerchief out flat and put a ribbon across the middle of it with the ends hanging over a little bit.
    • The longer the ribbon is, the easier it will be to tie it together when you are done.
    • Also remember that you may want to tie decorations to the ends of the ribbon… so be generous.
  2. Fold the handkerchief in half with the ribbon on the inside and in the crease.
  3. Fold the handkerchief again.
    • The handkerchief is now folded in quarters.
    • The ribbon is at the top and both ends of the ribbon are on the same side.
  4. Sew up the open sides of the handkerchief.
    • Stop sewing right before you get to the ribbon.
    • Tie a good knot.
  5. Then turn the whole thing inside out.
  6. Pull the ribbons tight and Voila!

You just made a drawstring pouch and it only took about 5 minutes. Cool huh? Now all that’s left is to decorate the outside (optional) and fill up the inside.

Here’s a visual tutorial:
