My son is a U.S. Marine, and while he was deployed I came up with the idea of making a purse using his unit patch as the focal point.  I added a charm with the first boot band he sent me from basic training.  A boot band is what Marines "blouse" their pants with, and you have to earn the privilege.  So I took his boot band, added a silver charm with his initials, and added it to the bag.  I used the Quilt's Illustrated ps026 Mini Bow Tucks pattern designed by Sturges.

It looks great! What a nice way to preserve these items. Much better than them ending up in a box in the attic.
