You may ask what a Putsi (Puht-Zee) is? A Putsi is a magical bag that most Gypsy’s use to carry their talismans & amulets among their most treasured items. Generally they are worn tied around the hip area or around the neck. They range in size, colors and may be beaded, embroidered and/or decorated with bells and items from nature. The possibilities are endless when personalizing a Putsi!
Shaman also uses similar bags but they call them Medicine Bags, they will generally carry herbs for medicinal purposes.

For my Putsi I heavily decorated (hand stitched) around the Brocade butterflies with complimenting seed beads, I also added 8mm antique brass finished bells on the front of the bag; end of drawstring cords & in between the tassel fringe. I left the drawstring cords long to make it easier for you to tie/hang around your hip/neck.
My bag is made from quality butterfly decorated Brocade fabric with colors of gold, greens, pink & blue on a black background. The lining is a beautiful burgundy satin material to give the Putsi an elegant finish. The beads & bag are double stitched to insure security; because the bells are heavier they are triple stitched.

Dimensions are the following:
1.) The bag open all the way at the top measures 8 inches across
2.) Closed the bag measures 3 inches across
3.) The middle of the bag measures 8 ¼ inches across
4.) The bottom of the bag measures 5 inches across
5.) Depth 7 inches
6.) It is 11 inches tall overall including the tassel
7.) Without the tassel it is 7 inches tall
8.) The drawstring cords when not pulled tight measure 13 inches long
9.) When the drawstring cords are pulled tight it measures 18 inches long.
