A favorite of gourd crafters.  Canteen gourds make excellent purses, small bowls, bird feeders, lidded boxes.

Traditional Canteen crafted by Lil Boesewetter October 2006

Lil Boesewetter brought me an example of a purse she had created from a canteen gourd.

Stood on edge, with a 1" to 1 1/2" hole cut in the side, a perfectly functional and fully traditional canteen is easily made.
