18TH CENTURY LIVING HISTORY, HISTORICAL TREKKING, AND LONG TERM SURVIVAL.
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?
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.
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.Market Wallet & Snapsack Links.http://www.18cnewenglandlife.org/18cnel/wallets.htmhttp://www.southernrangers.org/instr.htmhttp://www.southernrangers.org/Patrn2.jpg
