Hand made snapsack

The other day I purchased some good quality cotton canvas and from a pattern I found online I made a 18th century snapsack. I have made this 1st snapsack on the sewing machine as a test and in the near future I want to get an animal hide such as goat or calf and make a snapsack from that with the hair on the outside. The ties are sewn into the bag so they do not get lost and yesterday I had a chance to test it out whilst doing a few errands , it's very comfortable and holds a decent load. Most likely it would be fine for an overnight hike as well .
