“To fold the bag into its pocket, I start with the bag turned pocket side out. Then I fold it so that one pocket side with the sewn seams is facing up — I push in the front and back panels as though I were trying to do a “flat pack” with only the black outer seam along the bottom, sides, and top of one pocket showing. If you start by holding the inside-out bag with one pocket side on the bottom and the other on the top, then let this collapse onto a table and tuck in all the bits that would stick beyond the black seams you’ll see what I mean. Then, from that position, I turn one of the pockets inside out. Hold the flat pack so that the thumb of one hand is holding a point roughly under the seamed edge of the open pocket, and pull that edge towards the bottom of the pocket, so that the rest of the flat bag is now stuffed inside the pocket. Push down to straighten the inside edge of the inverted pocket. Then fold/roll in the remaining bits of bag, including the handles, that protrude from the top of the pocket for a neatly folded pack.”
For those of you who are more visual learners, hang in there – we’ll be posting a video of this soon.
