Haversack Details

Front of strap with small stitches, running left to right,
about 1/3 down from the top. Note how the stitches are
parallel with the strap and weave, this makes it difficult to
see the stitching without looking very closely at the strap.

Rear of strap showing the center seam, note the small "whip"
stitches which looks like a running stitch on the front.

View of inside edge of the haversack body.
A back stitch (bottom arrow) is used to sew the haversack
body together. Just above the back stitch is a running stitch (top arrow),
which may have kept the linen from fraying into the running stitch.

View of inside edge of the haversack body.
The running stitch (top arrow) is near the edge of the linen fabric
and the back stitch (bottom arrow) is below it.
Note the color difference, it looks like a different thread
was used for the two rows of stitches.

Top inside edge of the haversack flap showing the edge
is folded or rolled over and whip stitched.


Top edge of the haversack body is also folded
or rolled over and whip stitched.


Flat brass button in its buttonhole.
