Pop Up Tip #1 - How do the ties work?


How do those silly ties work anyways???

Some of the pop up patterns use ties as an option to hold the pop up closed for storage.  You can also use elastic or nothing at all... if you have no intention of ever storing it collapsed.  

How are they attached?

After the ties are sewn and a knot is tied on the end of each one, the other end is pinned up under the rolled top edge during finishing.


How do they hold it closed?

Hope that helps!
