Reference pictures below for help.   Step 4: Once all 4 corners are hemmed you will now do a rolled hem the whole way around the pack cover. Step 5: All 4 of your corners/edges should look like the picture below now.  20160121_132455 Step 6: Last step is to run the shock cord around the perimeter of the pack cover and add your cord lock to the end.
