Place the other fabric A panel on top, right side facing the right side of the panel below, so that the strap is sandwiched in the middle. Hold using clover clips. Make sure the strap doesn’t stick out from the bottom.
Next, sew all around as you did in step 6, leaving a small gap to turn right side out. Use a seam allowance of 3/8″. Clip the corners, trim the seam and turn right side out.
Place finished window piece under the luggage tag template so that the window piece is centered. Using a pencil add marks on the four points of the rectangle as shown. The pencil should pierce through the paper and touch the fabric so that you have four corners of the rectangle marked on the fabric.
Connect the marks to draw a rectangle and a cross as shown below.
Step 12: Use a rotary cutter to cut ON the diagonal lines ONLY to form 4 triangles as shown below. Fold the triangles, along the rectangle edges to the wrong side and press as shown.
Cut out the excess portion of the triangles.
Place the piece of plastic on the wrong side of the window piece so that it is centered. Hold together using clover clips.
Sew the plastic and window panels together along the edges of the rectangle using a seam allowance of 1/8″.
Place window panel wrong side down on top of main panel as shown. Hold together using clover clips. Sew only around the side and bottom edges as represented by the dotted lines, leaving the top open. Use a seam allowance of 3/8″.
