    DIY Round Bottom Stuff Sack

    There has been some recent activity around here of folks looking for a round bottom stuff sack tutorial and I thought I'd show you how I do it. So here is another delightfully dull, how-to video.
    As usual, if you're looking to be entertained, you're watching the wrong video.

    Good luck,

    Nice job and the math didn't hurt too much. Never did see the pie you mentioned.

    Thanks so much Eric, you're too kind. Got the drawstring channel from an old gear book I've got, definitely not my idea.

    Thank you. You need to be pretty quick to see pie if I'm around, I loves me some pie.

    Nice work with the drawstring, so much more thought involved as opposed to my OJT version. (on the job).
    Nature restores my sanity. Seeking to get out more.

    There is a touch more to it than the folded corner method,but it's actually how I learned to make my first stuff sack.

    Nice video and I, like the others, like the drawstring channel. I don't really need another stuff sack, but something tells me I'm gonna make one soon....

    Thanks for making such a great tutorial on how to make a stuff sack. I can't wait to try it out.
