3. To start the sack sides, lay the wrapped clothesline over the highest point of the peripheral column of oval curl. Move the base under the sewing machine foot so the oval is flipped up marginally on the left half of the foot. Keep sewing between the lines, including sweater strip wraps, and snaking the clothesline on top of the base.

5. At the point when the pack sides reach around 7″ tall, add a handle to one wide side by leaving a 7″-long segment of the secured cording unstitched. Shape the handle as coveted, leaving a hole between the curl and the handle. Backstitch toward the start and end of the handle where it appends to the loop for additional support.

3. Gradually turn the curls counterclockwise as you crisscross join in the middle of the lines. For long constant bends, you may wish to change to an open toe sewing machine foot. Tilt curl as you join to assemble sides.
