This is a girl-sized pouch like the one Josefina wears around her waist. It seems to be made of real leather; looks just like her original moccasins.
The pouch is 7" wide by 6" tall. The strap is 28" long. Very small pouch! There is no tag attached to the pouch itself, so if the hang-tag is missing, it is not identified as Hallmark nor American Girl.
Inside are 8 note-cards with Josefina reading on the front. They are blank inside. There are also 8 envelopes.
The hang tag reads: Josefina fell in love with writing the moment she watched Papá make a graceful, spiraling flourish under his name. When Tía Dolores showed Josefina the little book of Mamá's poems and songs, Josefina couldn't wait to learn to read it herself, and add her own memories of Mamá. It's wonderful to be able to write a note (or even a poem or song!) that someone else will read and want to save.
