Snaps and Folding

  • Sew or attach a side of a snap to the folded over edge on both snap strips as shown in the photo. (Both sides of the snaps will be facing up.)
Folding the Bag:
  • Lay the bag out flat.
  • Fold the length of the bag in half so the two handles are on top of each other.
  • Continuing in the same direction, fold the bag in thirds.
  • Fold the handles down to the bottom of the bag.
  • Fold in 2" squares or roll the folded length of the bag down to meet the snap strips.
  • Bring the snap strips around the bag and snap the strips in place to hold the bag folded.
