For the bag itself, ’tis best to use flannel.
– Madam Josephine
Creating the base of the mojo bag by hand enhances your connection to the magical working. You can sew the bag together and add your own drawstring. Or you can spread out a five-inch square of material, add the items to the middle, and then gather the edges up and tie them together with twine.
The most common material used to make mojo bag is flannel. Leather, silk, hemp, or felt might be used, but flannel is traditional.
Some practitioners prefer to use red flannel no matter the goal of the mojo bag. But others prefer to select a color of flannel that matches the intentions.
