Pirate Satchel

I needed a bag for my Pirate circle journal and this is what I came up with. An old bone meal sack, a bit of leather, and a felt patch all sewn up to house my journal. I am inspired by the story of Fanny Campbell, who became a pirate to rescue her sailor husband who was forced into piracy and then arrested for it. Fanny took board as a man, organized a mutiny, became captain and eventually rescued her man. This bag stems from her story. It's as if Fanny grabbed her husband's gear and took to the sea with it, creating this container for her story, my story. A pirate for love.
