Let's Get Organized - Ditty Bags

Back in the days when America was a seafaring nation, apprentice
sailors made their own ditty bag as part of their apprenticeship.

In the course of making the bag, these apprentices learned all the
sewing skills they would need as a sailor: how to sew flat-felled
seams, installing grommets, and more. And, they had a useful bag
to carry all their tools and personal supplies when they went to sea.

make bags and purses as you make your own Ditty Bag:

anything and everything.
