That is an excellent idea. They'd have to be cotton or cotton blend, and I'd only require a piece no bigger than 3 inches square.

I'll use the same material for the lining, cord and beads that I used for Frankie's bag. We could create a contributors listing(with diagram) for the deck and bag to be included.

Unfortunately I don't have any broken decks to have extra cards from. (weird to find that unfortunate huh? LOL) BUT!! I have fabric, lavender cotton, kinda blotched..hard to describe. But lovely, I bought it to make a cover for my spiritual garden table...

Would this be desirable?

I have a Russina print of the Arcus Arcanum. I suspect it's a pirate copy, so won't sell it, but I don't use it. I'd happily donate a card or two, could mange nearly all of them LOL A major and a suit? Pick?

*Off topic* Is it by any chance from the Ice House? Have you thought about making a Shadowscapes bag from it? They had a yummy lavendar tie-dye type fabric the last time I was in there.*

I have one card I can send - if no one has contributed this so far, I have:

World card from Ciro's Legacy deck

(It even looks a little patch-work-like with the four elements in each corner)

*Also off topic* Nope not from the Ice House..how lovely to have someone to say that to and have someone else understand huh?! Good thought though - when looking for the perfect cloth, I completely forgot about that place. I'm not terribly crafty, ordinarily...LOL That's a good description of it though - Shades of lavender tie-dyed.

Good idea on the bag, but I'm actually crocheting a tarot box for my Shadowscapes. It's about half done, but I got busy doing hospital runs etc. When things smooth out I'll finish that AND make the table covering! I don't have a sewing machine any more (lost it to my divorce) so I'm hand sewing it -- planning on using an embroidery backstitch. Should make it strong (to hold elastic - I want it fitted) AND put personal energies into it

To be on-topic --- should I make it exactly 3" square, or do you want a bit of extra to work with/trim? And, just one layer, or two?

Just one layer. The pieces are actually pretty small. If you go to the Frankendecken Journal thread and find a picture to open, you'll be able to see his bag. (Post #47 has a good pic, top one)

They don't actually "have to be" 3 inches square. If you've got an odd shaped scrap that fits in the dimensions, that'll work just fine.

That's a lovely bag -- it will be awesome to have a piece of fabric in the next one! I can think, that piece right there, it came from here...!

The only extra card I have is the Queen of Cups from the Gilded Tarot. Would be happy to send it on its way!
