The side seams for this bag are sewn in two steps to prevent anything that is put inside the bag from snagging on an unenclosed screen eges.Even a bathing suit will be safe from snags if the screen edges are enclosed.
  • Fold the bag in half again, placing the back side (screen coated sides) of the straps to each other.
  • Align the edges and pin in place.
  • Sew the side edges together using a 1/4" seam allowance.
  • Reach inside the bag and finger press the seam allowance to one side, working the seam allowance all the way down to the corner of the bag.
