A not very close copy of the bag used in the movies.
I wanted a double layer of fabric at the D rings for strength. There is no telling what boys will put into a bag. The sides are 3 inches wide and the D rings are 1 1/2 inches wide. The fabric would not cooperate until I thought of water. Completely soaked the canvas, shaped it around the D ring then ironed the attachment section until dry.
I thought the flap corners on the original bag were interesting. Square corners folded under and stitched.
Light weight canvas, snaps, 2 D rings, old web belt
