7. Place your panel back into the opening you created. If you’re very lucky, the panel will fit perfectly and stay in place but in most cases, you’ll need to secure it somehow. There are two options: sewing and gluing. Gluing would be the easiest thing to do but you need to make sure you use a very strong adhesive. Personally, I’m more of a sewer since strong glues tend to have nasty chemicals in them. Sewing is more difficult because you’ll need to sew from the inside of the bag so that your stitches are hidden but as long as the bag’s not tiny, it’s totally doable. Just sew a straight line of stitches (through the inner and outer layers) right along the outer edges of the plastic around the panel. These stitches will hold the panel in place.
8. That’s it! Now you have a brand new solar bag for a mere fraction of what it would cost you to buy retail.
