> parfleshes. A parfleshe is a native american carrying case/portfolio.
> Instead of asking my MS students to purchase a sketch pad for the
> year, this
> worked out wonderfully! They are made out of a brown grocery bag to
> rawhide. It closes with a flap on either side & ties shut with twine.
> punched holes in the inside middle & added paper fasteners that held
> sheets of school copy machine paper. Students took notes & made
> sketches in their parfleches.
> An example of this is in: Brown Bag Ideas From Many Cultures
