Hand Painted Messenger Bag - USAAF 8th Air Force and 324 Squadron badges

Giving ex-army (Yugoslavia) surplus bag a new lease of life. The bag has been machine washed and then I carefully hand painted, using acrylic paints and a fabric medium, with the badges of the USAAF 8th Air Force (top badge) and the 324th Squadron (lower badge).

As the bag is military ex-surplus there are signs of use and patchy colour, and sometimes signs of repairs. However the bags are very sturdy and have lots of character.

The bag has the expected shoulder sling, plus a waist belt. This allows the bag to be secured around your waist, great for security in crowd situations. The waist sling, can be tucked in the bag if you don't need to use it.

Front flap is secured by two toggles. Inside the bag there is one compartment which gives you 3 sections (2 at the back and one at the front).

Bag dimensions are 23.5x 28x10cm.
