Washed Up

 Ran out of washers. Have to come up with a better plan.

This is a carpet bag, popular in the thirties. There was a book published maybe fifty years ago called The Carpetbaggers. From Wikipedia:

The term "carpetbagger" refers to an outsider relocating to exploit locals.[1] It derives from postbellum South usage, where it referred specifically to opportunistic Northerners who flocked to pillage the occupied southern states. At the time, bags made of carpet-weave cloth from northern mills were a ubiquitous form of hand-carried luggage.

One of my plans is to cover a guitar case in wall paper, similar to the carpet bags of old.
