DIY drybag 7L

DIY drybag 7L

This is a circular, flat bottomed 7L drybag with a PP rib insert. Using a PP rib does three things, easier roll down, better seal on the roll down and doesn't blow open when pressure is asserted on the sealed bag (if you still have a bunch of air inside). If you dont think your machine will go through the PP sheet (its quite soft so dont underestimate your machine, use a pointed needle not a blunt one).

Things to note: The taping of a circular bottom with PSA tape is not the most elegant, but it does the job (100% waterproof). If you use a PU coated fabric, use a sealing tape that uses heat and apply it to the PU coated side of the fabric (tape and iron for this is show at 4:26 mark), which should be on the inside of the bag. 

Any questions please leave them in the comments on youtube and ill get back to you.
