If you want it to be a tutorial, then you should write some words about what's going on in the photos. The main reason for this is that people who are looking for tutorials, have most likely not sewn for a long time or have never sewn at all. Without  text to go with the photos, you're lifting the bar probably too high for people who aren't already aware of what's going on and could build something similar.

That's why I posted it as "sort of a tutorial". I didn't have the time to fully describe the steps I went through.  Of course people would get the most value if I wrote detailed instructions. But I guess the pictures are better than nothing...?

Exactly. That's why I feel that it belongs in the "Show it off" section, where you could have posted photos of the finished product and then included your WIP photos as well to better explain what's involved. Compared to other tutorials here, and complied from DIY Tactical, it doesn't meet the standards of what a tutorial is. If you need examples, then I'd recommend the cdhtac backpack tutorial and the old DIY ones posted by bravodelta here.

Now, 2nd warning. Please post an intro in the appropriate forum.
