The above is one of my own Cartridge Bags. Made from my own patterns, the front is piped, the back flap & other parts have bound edges. The interior is lined with suedeen, The shoulder sling is not sewn directly to the bag as most manufactured ones are but is attached using buckles & 'D' rings as linkage. This avoids direct pull & wear on the bag.

All this information is included in Manual No.1
