A few years ago when I watched the DVD of "The Bourne Identity", I thought the bag he'd carried from the bank was cool looking.
Being a seamstress, I decided that it wouldn't be that difficult to replicate.

[^these photos gleaned from the int'net. I don't know whose they are.]

Red Canvas, eyelets around the top, cord that can tie to an eyelet.
First, I found a pattern (Butterick 6678), bought the elements required, and started.

I, of course, wasn't certain how to do the black stencils around the top, so used reflective tape. Instead of the word "Brennen" (German for "Burn", I found out), I put on my last name.  Then, because I felt like it, I added an appliqu of a Coffee Cup.
I think it's a good bag. My husband snitched it and was keeping some work items in it. This one and another I'd made got really filthy. He wasn't sure if it would work, but he flung them into the washing machine. These pics are after the wash.

And closed

And, the hook clipped to the eyelet


According to my sewing journal, I made this in March 2008
... 9 years ago  Shocked

I don't mind it at all. My husband is quite impressed with it, and with how well it cleaned up.

What do you think, Craftsters and guests? Feedback welcome.
