Gris Gris Bags

Gris Gris Bags

The gris gris bag is a powerful charm bag made out of red flannel or chamois bag. You never change the color of the bag. The bag is always red flannel or chamois. If the bag you are making calls for a specific color, you would put a piece of that material in the bag. For instance, if your bag required a purple color. You would find a piece of purple fabric. Then cut a square piece of the purple material out. Place it in your gris gris bag. This takes care of the color correspondence.
