Memory bag

I have not done a lot of sewing this spring and summer because, to my great annoyance, my arm is still not really up to it yet. I have only finished two commissions this season but hopefully this will change next year!

This commission was quite special. One of my cousins gave me a leather coat to use for making bags. It had belonged to her late husband. I promised to make a bag out of this for her first and here it is. I used the epaulettes on the front and back of the bag. The one at the front can be opened and hides a large pocket. The one on the back is just decoration because the large pocket is divided into two.

For the inside I used olive green linen and it has one internal pocket.
