On some bags you will find a dart marked on the template (see Pattern Pullout Sheet). A dart is a tapered tuck that is sewn into items to give them structure, shape or fullness.
1). Take your bag or pocket piece containing the dart.
2). Fold the bag piece, right sides together, so that the raw side edges of the dart triangle are now on top of each other, as shown.
3). Stitch the raw edges together with a sewing machine, tapering the stitches to the folded edge.
