An historical forerunner of the military 'duffle bag' perhaps Keith. Could be the design is a carry over from the 18th century. Tradition maybe or simply enduring, efficient design? They are both very similar I think.

I see no pattern; did you just eyeball it?

Le Loup said...

Yes Dave, I thought the same thing. There is even a pattern that is almost identical, including the eyelets and drawstring, but I am not sure how authentic to the 18th century it is.

Le Loup said...

Gorges. There are some directions & pattern, but my wife did not wholly follow it. She used the sizes. I have added the links to the article for you. If you have any questions I am sure my wife would be only too pleased to help if she can.
Regards.

*sigh* I WANT ONE TOO! Great job...I too dabble in making things I see that was the mainstay of the past. No comparisons to the "new" stuff.
Happy New Year~~~~
