    Nice video. The 22 minutes went by fast. Editing not a big issue we can fast forward when needed. more lighting would be good. I learned a few tricks with your video. thanks

    I just finished the first 5 of 7 stuff sacks I need. Trying to figure out how big a stuff sack is kinda easy, depending on what you want to stuff in it!

    Figuring out how big a compression sack was for my quilts was the hardest - trying to stuff a quilt into a pillowcase and compress it by hand was like herding cats....

    I ended up having to add 6" to the top of the first compression sack so that I had enough sack to fold down before I could start the compressing.

    For things like my first aid kit, I simply assembled everything I wanted to put in it. It all fit in a medium ziplock so I made just a flat sack about the same size.

    The one for my kitchen, I made with a round bottom on it so that my plate (the largest diameter item) would fit on the bottom.

    For clothing stuff sack, take all the clothes you figure you're likely to take, put them in a grocery bag or pillow case and fold the extra bag/case down until you get it as small as it will go. Use a tape measure and math (Pi = 3.14 btw)

    Whatever you do, don't forget to add enough fabric so that you can get the sack closed. That and add seam allowances and extra fabric for making the cord casing.

    Well, every one is different because I don't really have a formula, but a general rule of thumb I've found is that the circumference needs to be greater than 7" to make for easy stuffing. So I usually start by stuffing my hammock or whatever into a grocery bag and wadding it until it's about 7" or " around, then seeing how long it is, and make my stuff sack to fit that, with a little extra room.
    See? Very scientific.

    Hope that helps,

    In post number 8, Pucker used mesh as a pocket. What method did you use Pucker to attached and tame the ends/edges of the mesh?

    Thanks!
