Deployment Yellow Ribbon Bag

I have been a busy, busy girl!

A few weeks ago I did a project for a customer.  I was very honored to create this bag for her, honoring her husbands service in the U.S. Army.

I created this bag using one med. size Army top. Tutorial to follow in the coming weeks.

Front of bag using back of top, pockets and collar
Back of bag using two wide panels from the front of the top sewn together in the center as well as another large pocket.  Sides of the purse were created using the lower half of the sleeves including the cuff
Side of bag using the lower half of the sleeve and re positioning the pencil pocket

Inside of bag again using large pocket on one side, and two smaller pockets on the other, over  lapping to create a small pocket in the center, so there are actually five total pockets on the inside of this bag.
