We are attaching our top and bottom
pieces onto the Makrolon. The attachment edges with the ½ inch added have
been roller cut through two layers. We
use 1/8-inch low tack seam tape on both
sides of the Makrolon. Apply the seam
tape far away from the cut edge so it
does not ooze out in the heat of summer. When attaching, align with care.
We use weights on the Makrolon and
pins on the trim edges to align exactly
½ inch onto the Makrolon in line with
the paper backing previously cut back.
Then we remove the seam tape backing
and stick in place. We now sew right
along our attachment edge to attach.
Next, we staystitch just inside our cut
lines on our Stamoid-attached pieces
and cut off the trim edges along with
our staples. In the photo, we are sticking
the backside with an even, flat hand.

To cut our vertical strips, we use a width
stick of 2½ inches. We roller cut these
edges to keep them super straight and
aligned. These strips will be folded in half
to finish 1¼ inches when applying. We
cut across the weft of the Stamoid. We
apply our 2½-inch roller-cut strips to the
vertical sides ½ inch onto the Makrolon,
aligning with the edge of our masking. We
use ⅛-inch seam tape on the outboard
edge on both sides to hold it in place. In
the photo, we have flipped the panel and
are sticking the backside so the edges align
with the outside and the masking. We
stitch these strips onto the Makrolon on
the inner edges. Additionally, the outside edges of these strips will be stitched.
Binding needs to go onto the bottoms and
one side. The extra ¾ inch added to each
vertical edge adds back what was needed
in order to match our patterns exactly. The
zippers will now be stitched between, but
not directly onto, the Makrolon. At this
point we preflight what we made against
our pattern. They should match exactly.
