Assemble Bag

1. Fold bag body in half. Sew together side and bottom edges (Diagram 8). Zigzag or serge seams.

2. Using remaining multicolor stripe 2-1/2x42" strip, bind top edge of bag. Turn bag right side out.

TIP: To make attaching binding easier, machine-stitch on seam line through all layers without thread, creating a "dotted line" of needle holes. Then thread the machine and stitch on the seam line.
