I'm not sure if you want to do the leather panels on the sides, but it looks like you could possibly use an old turtle neck sweater to make this. 

That fold over flap around the top certainly reminds me of a turtleneck, especially because the ribbing is... tighter/smaller.

I guess if you just cut off the arms and made the torso part into the body of the bag, put a lining inside, added straps?

Just a thought.
