You can find varying theories about the origin of the ditty bag, but they all seem to agree on its practical nature. A sailor would use a small canvas ditty bag for small essentials such as toiletries, letters, writing paper, pens, small souvenirs, and sewing supplies. You’ll find endless uses for it, too. (Shaving accoutrement or makeup, for starters.)
