AniaM | Tarot Bags | Alexander Daniloff

So this technically isn't a court card blog post, but I HAD to share the beautiful gift that arrived for me in the post this morning: a magnificent custom-made Tarot bag from AniaM.

You may have twigged, dear reader, that one of my very most favourite decks is Alexander Daniloff's Tarot.  It has been in a bag, of course, to keep it safe, but I REALLY wanted a custom-made bag to store it in the regal glory that it deserves!

And here it is - ivory velvet, lined with gold.....




I had sent Ania a few jpgs of tiny sun and moon images that decorate the cardback.

And Ania, clever sausage that she is, turned the sun into a pattern for her embroidery machine.
My photo is a bit rubbishy, but you can just see the sun image on the card's back.


And to try to keep it at least nominally court card orientated, that's the Knight of Wands you can see in that first image.

The bag is a pressie from my lovely friend, Viv Kacal.  Thank you Viv - I luff it 11/10!!!

Show me your favourite Tarot bags and boxes!

    1. The embroideries are all done, just have to finish making up the bags. Should be in the post Monday as I'm off to an event shortly :)

  2. This bag looks absolutely gorgeous! It is the perfect match for your favorite deck!
    Usually I knit the bags for my decks myself and I try to match the yarn to the colors of the back. When I don't have a bag ready yet and the deck came with a tucbox, I've got a few bookboxes to store them in.:)
