As a Phoenix dies, it goes up in flames and will be born anew from the ashes.

The lace pattern on this bag and the contrast colour that can be seen through the top layer give the impression of flames and feathers, as on a Phoenix.

The two layers make the bag a bit more sturdy than just one, but it still stretches so you can fit a lot into it.

I used up almost all of my 3 balls in MC, so I suggest getting an extra one just to be safe or if you are not sure if you can match my gauge exactly
