Photos didn't load in your post when I viewed it now. Maybe try again?

These are the links, peternap. Not sure why they keep showing as broken links when embedded. Right click on them and open in new tab/window and they work just fine.

Use the Image URL, not the Image Link

Here are instructions on where to enter the Image URL so the picture comes up on the page - http://www.vahuntingforum.com/showthread.php?tid=7510

Brandon, you're going to have to be more specific. The "URL" is the "image link". What are you saying is the difference? If I type that the text pasted in my last message into any browser, the picture is visible which means it's a URL. That's the same text I use when using the "insert picture" icon on the VAHB toolbar. The options presented for copying "direct links" in the HOWTO you posted aren't available on the anonymous picture hosting site. I get the URL and nothing else. Maybe I need to find a different option for picture hosting but someone (can't remember who) corrected my first picture attempt (in another thread) so I know it's possible.

Okay, I finally figured out the "add attachment" tool at the bottom of the page, rather than the toolbar at the top.    Some new pics of the "dye job" (turned out "pumpkin" colored after drying) and then one of the "small pocket" interior that shows the smaller accessory pockets for storing knives, phone, etc.

Outside pocket and side walls of main pocket with just a hint of the parachord "lift handle" on the top.
   

Accessory pockets inside the "outside pocket".   You can still see the pattern of the backpack parts I salvaged from my daughter's damaged school backpack.

Now the pack is almost finished.  The side walls are a bit floppy so I'm going to line them with something to stiffen them up a bit.  I still need to add the "saddle" for the bow cam/rifle butt and sew the bottom in place but it's starting to look like a backpack now.  You can see how light the orange dye ended up being compared to the blaze orange pocket covers. I may do some more dye work with it but probably not. I was hoping for a blaze orange base that I could camouflage but it looks like I'll probably just leave it as is. Clearly the material isn't taking the dye the way I had hoped it would.

Synthetic fibers rarely take dye well as they are typically less porous than natural fibers. Still.... Looking good. And if it suits your specific needs for a pack that's fantastic.

Just curious, what material do you plan to use to stiffen the side walls?

The weird part is this is cotton fabric, not synthetic. It is incredibly porous though, so I suspect that's the real issue. The big thing I wanted to get out of this was the integrated haul yoke and that will definitely work. I need to add a sternum strap, which I forgot when I was putting the shoulder straps together, but adding a sliding sternum strap will be easy and more versatile too.

May get this finished tonight since we rarely get any trick or treaters at our house. We'll see.
