Fold top down about and 1 1/2 inches.
Make sure seams are open and flat.
Stitch about an inch down from the top edge all the way around the top.
Clip bottom corners.
Turn bag right side out. With a seam ripper take out a few stitches of the top seam on one side.
This will leave an opening to send the tie through.
To keep the seam from coming undone. Stitch back and forth across the seam at the top and the bottom.
Feed the ribbon or twin through the casing. Attaching a safety pin to the ribbon or twine will help feed it through.
