I
' Y flallowmg these two portions to be snapped together as shown in Figs. 3 and 4. It will noted that when the bag is thus folded thatr the flap or' strip 3 provides a cover (for the folded edges of the bag and in the "folded position the snap fasteners 6 and 1 *7 may be readily se arated to allow am to the pocket 5 so t at the pocket 6'is alportion 6 of a snap fastener and a companion portion 7 is adapted to snap thereover and is secured in the side of the bag so that the two parts when snapped together close the pocket The strip 3 is provided with an extending loose end or flap in which the portion 8 of a'snap fastener is secured as shown in F 2 and is adapted to fit the companion snap fastener portion 9 when the bag is folded, the snap fastener 9 being fastened in the same side of the bag asthe-snap fastener portion 7. A handle 10 is secured to one side of the bag at the oints 11 and 12 and a handle 13 is simiarly secured to the opposite side of the bag.
