That's right! It became a bag!
Everything on this bag turned out the way I wanted. Even the leather straps which I made myself, and which I'm kind of proud of! They're made out of two layers of natural leather sewn together. The linen is natural oat-meal colored. The patches are cotton and denim.
The bag is fully lined, has two inner side pockets. The patchworked front has an extra layer of flannel in between and is hand embroidered. The back panel is plain natural linen.
No need to add this bag is unique...
