Instructions how to sew the haversack

Haversacks are very easy to sew even for beginners. This kit is copied from a British original formerly in the private collection of J. Craig Nannos & includes directions written by Roy Najecki. The haversack includes ready cut pieces of oatmeal linen (WLG 102), with 35/2 unbleached linen thread, 16 ¾” wide by 13 ½” tall. The strap will be 34″ long when finished which fits the majority of people & is based on the original which corresponds to period illustrations.
