This is Vicki Walker for Expert Village. We
are working today on the backpack for a little girl and the backpack that we would be using
rather then having grommets like the one on the bottom of this backpack. We are using
D rings. I have cut off some loops out of extra fabric that I have of the ladybug fabric.
I have pressed under the edges and I’m making a loop out of these that would be inserted
through the D rings. Then we would go onto the bottom part of the seam on our backpack
when we start to sew the seam down. So I would sew the next to the press edge of the loop
to get it ready for that. The length of the loop does not matter but
the one that I have here is 4 1/2 inches long. A little bit shorter would probably be just
fine and I would probably not end up using all the length on this. We can cut it down
some when we insert it into the seam in just a moment. For now I would go ahead and insert
it through the D ring and I’m going to sew close to the D ring here. To sew the 2 pieces together. That is how
we prepare our D ring for inserting into the seam.
