I've made this on a classic tubular carpet bag frame, from a patterned Moquette, originally made in 1932 for Britsh transport bus seats, with red leather trim and linen map print fabric, between the twofabric layers I'veused a purewool wadding to give depth. There is a leather lined pocket on the front under the flap which fastens wth a magnetic fastener, and a flap with a burnishe silver turnlock. It has 2 heavily piped 15.5" (39cms) straps,a hardened base with 5 chrome anti-scratch feet. The interior has one large zipped pocket and one divided patch pocket. 
Dimensions are a spacious 15.5"(39cms) wide, 15" (38cms) deep with 7" (18cms) sides. One available now and one as a made to order also an option for black leather trim.( made within 2 weeks)
