    HH Stuff sack to bishop bag.

    Does anyone have pictures of the way they did it? I'm thinking of just cutting off a corner, heat sealing the end and folding and sewing the edges.

    I haven't done it yet but I was planning to just stick a grommet in the middle of the bottom.

    Suggestion if you're going to cut and heat seal. Take an old crappy knife you don't care about. Heat it up til it's almost red. Use it to hot cut the fabric. Chop and seal in one go! I use a blade shaped tip on a soldering iron to cut rope like that. It works amazingly well.

    this is kind of what i did with mine, except no grommet, i just did a really good zigzag stitch about a .75 inch square and then cut out the center material and ran my suspension for one end thru the hole, seems to be working fine so far

    I used a woodburning pen to cut and seal the edges

    Heat up a nail and push melt it through the bag.

    Usually I reinforce the hole with some webbing and then melt a hole.

    Ain't nothin' to it but to do it.

    My girlfriend has a nice sewing machine with a fancy button-hole foot and setting. Just install the special foot, select the appropriate setting, and hit a button and it does it all. I made mine about 1 1/2 inches long, just to one side of the bottom seam.
