Small 18th century haversack

As I had some spare cotton canvas left over from my snapsack project I thought I would make my wife a smaller version of a 18th century haversack, the common shoulder bag for soldiers and travelers throughout the 18th century. It turned out ok in the end but I am unable to find pewter buttons here in Japan so had to make do with some cheap metal ones instead. It was also the first time I have ever tried to hand sew button holes , now I know how to do it so I'm sure next time it will be a lot easier to make this style of bag.
