I love my French Army Journal Bag but it was looking quite sun damaged and sad so I punched up the color a bit and added a bit of stitching. I simply put the bag in a bucket with a powder dye and left it to bake in the sun for a bit. Gave it a thorough rinsing and put it back outside to dry and finished it in the dryer. The back of the bag has a sewn in piece of press board so I didn't to encourage secret mold. People of all ages talk to me when I walk around with this so it's kind of fun. I have more than can fit on this bag so I rotate them.I can't wait to find more buttons.
