In classic Sioux blue.  This type of beading was done for personal use and to show off the artist’s expertise. The storage bag is beaded on one side, sinew sewn in a “lazy stitch” with a decoration of abstract form in blue, white, green, cobalt and gold.  The edges are also beaded with metal jingles and red dyed horsehair.
