6. Use a tailor’s awl to poke the raw ends in and to hold the strap end firmly in place as you sew the very edge of the fold line to the strap. Then stitch a box-like shape to enclose the raw ends. Bagged-Out (Tube) Straps When a strap is more than 11/2˝ wide, a fourfold strap unnecessarily uses a lot of fabric.

We’ll call this the seam allowance line. 4. Measure 1/2˝ in from each end of the seam allowance line, and place a dot to mark this spot. Draw lines from the dots on the seam allowance line to the corner points of the stitch line, as shown. Seam allowance line Stitch line CF/CB ½˝ 8. Fold the pocket facing up, flipping the seam centerline to the top edge of the pocket facing, as shown.

TIP: Run a fabric gluestick along the long edges of the template plastic, and stick the seam allowances to the plastic.
