    Tip – I use a stapler as a utilitarian sewing machine. Not as pretty, but speedy & effective.
    Cheap/light gardening weed-block fabric works also.

    sidenote: I ripen & store fruits in large fold-over bag made of this fabric in the kitchen. It allows fruits to bathe in ethylene gas, doesn't hinder air exchange, and keeps the gnats off.

    I want to make these bags for the fruit on my peach tree to protect them from the coddling moth and also birds. Great video! Thanks!

    My problem is birds. Think this would help?

    This is brilliant. Companies should produce these bags for sale.

    Some of the bugs here can lay eggs through this type (floating row cover may work better). I know people who use nylon footies on fruits that tend to rot to save time sewing.

    I also used this recently on my strawberries, which worked well. It prevented a certain totally unexpected insect from eating them as soon as they started to ripen (see my video entitled Strawberry Horror) http://youtu.be/n-EnnMZM3aE.
